Harrington-Hickory Mine, Beaver County, Utah.
The Harrington-Hickory explored two fissures, the Adelia and the Harrington that cross the mine property.  The mine was developed by four main shafts and several smaller shafts.  Workings reached depths in excess of 600 feet with several thousand feet of drifts and crosscuts on the various levels.  The mine saw activity from the 1860's through the early 1900's and sporadic periods of mining have occurred since that time, most notably in the 1940's-50's.
