Anschutz Mining owns the land on the outskirts of town and they are based out of Denver.

Don't worry about the mines being undermined, most all of Madison County is undermined!

Actually most of the county isn't undermined. Mines can only extend underground to their respective property lines above ground. There may be a few cases here and there where some old mining property was sold to private individuals but this isn't everywhere

They own most of the mining all over madison county. That means your property to. It means they own your soil. So dont be dumb.

Check it out, i'm sure you will find out over half of Madison County is undermined. There has been at least four big mines in the county.

There was the Park City mines at Mill CREEK up behind the graveyard, the Higdon mines, the National lead mines (that is anschutz now) Mine La Motte mines ( that gave us the offsets). Read up on the mining in Madison County, you will be surprized what you are sitting on, or not sitting on I should say.

We also had nickel. An old newspaper article states that the first nickel coin may well have been produced from our mines because they could not show any other in the U.S. at the time.

Yeah I have read that but I'm friends with a geologic engineer that has worked within the mining industry locally and he says the statements that so many places in the county are undermined is a big misconception.

You can go to the courthouse and library to check for yourself, This area is all undermined. You could probably get alot of info at the Democrat News.
