Tintic Historic Mining Area

- During the boom years, over half a billion dollars in silver and gold was taken from the hills of the Tintic mining area. Cowboy George Rust discovered silver in 1869, and mining camps and towns with mineral and mining names – Silver City, Diamond City, Ironton, Mammoth and Eureka, popped up along the hills. The area was named for Ute Chief Tintic. Today only Eureka survives among the dusty ghost towns once home to thousands.
