1914. Set of five photographs, three unique. Writing from July of 1914 identifies the elevation at 3,000 feet, pack train going up the down the trail from the mine, 500 sacks of ore at Tunnel #1, power plat, flume, and water plant. Part of Valdez's heritage is located 7 miles up beautiful Mineral Creek Canyon. Today the Stamp Mill of the Mountain King Mine stands as a tribute to the efforts of early miners to strike it rich. The Stamp Mill then and now is state owned, but it was built by W.L. Smith during the summer and winter of 1913. It took a total of two men to work the stamp mill at all times. During its first year of operation, the stamp mill produced 120 tons of ore and used only two stamps that weighed a total of 1,200 lbs.City: ValdezCounty: Valdez-CordovaState: AKDate:
