JUAB COUNTY UTAH
by Tom Ashworth
The amount of gold from Juab County is hard to estimate, because a lot of the gold totals were combined with the East Tintic District in Utah County. Most of the gold came from lode sources and are of little interest to the placer miner.
In Fish Springs many are lead - silver mines produced rich by product of gold.
TinticThis district produced almost 3 million ounces of gold as a by product of the load mines. The principal mines were the Chief, Centennial, Eureka, Mammoth, Gemini, Eureka Hill, Iron Blossom, Tintic Standard, North Lilly, and Eureka Lilly. Below the mines there is a potential for placer deposits.
West TinticThe area lead and copper mines produced a by product of gold.
