|Description: The history of the Sunset Mining District began in 1897 with several prospecting and small mining operations, but the Lucy Gray Mine, the chief producing property in the District did not begin operations until 1905. Total production from this property is estimated at $50,000,|
principally in gold with lesser amounts of silver, lead and copper. Major production occurred during the period of 1911-1938, and the mine closed in 1941 owing to World War II.
