Bunker Hill Quadrangle


Mining in the Bunker Hill Quadrangle

None of the mines in the vicinity of Bunker Hill were large or served beyond the local trade. Most of the mining took place between 1870 and 1920. Andrew Howard operated a mine before 1882, and the location of that mine is unknown. It was reported to have worked along a tributary to the Wood River, and may be located near Crow Hollow No. 1 Mine (mine index 2900) or Crow Hollow No. 2 Mine (mine index 2899). Howard’s mine was reputed to have a seam about 4 feet thick at a depth of 160 feet. Three other mines worked very close to the town of Bunker Hill, but all these closed by 1940.
