Thread: The Burro Mine & Treasure Box Mine

    The Burro Mine & Treasure Box Mine

    Anybody know anything about the Burro Mine above Bountiful? It seems to me there's a lot of stuff out there about the road/trail to the Burro Mine, but not much about the mine itself. Has anyone on here actually been to the mine? If so, what can you tell me?

    The Treasure Box- I just saw it on a map of City Creek Canyon. Info/pictures on it would be good too, but I'm really interested in the Burro.

    Trevor and I attempted it last year. We heard it was open. I looked online a few months and read about how someone climbed up to it and most adits were closed. There was one open still and went back a few hundred feet with a shaft that stopped him.

    It's a long hike just to the mine. Took me and Trevor about 2 1/2hours one way in our snowshoes.

    Headed out hiking on Saturday with T & D, looking for mines etc above Farmington. Give Trevor a call if you want to come.

    The guys at Mojave Underground might have done it or have info on it.
