Open-Pit Copper Mining at Bingham Canyon – Utah

Bingham Canyon’s lasting fame in mining history is a result of being the first district to apply large-scale open-pit mining and economical mechanical processing to low-grade copper ores. In the early 1900s, two adjoining mines at Bingham Canyon—Utah Copper and Boston Consolidated— initiated the use of mechanization in the mines, mills ...

The Bingham copper deposits, Utah, as an exploration ...

The Bingham mining district was discovered in 1863, shortly after Caucasian civilization reached the Great Basin. For many decades argentiferous galena-sphalerite ores were produced from steeply dipping veins and bedded replacement deposits. Copper occurrences were known, but largely uneconomic.

1996-4-22  "Gold ores" in the porphyry copper stock . There are two different types of gold concentrations in porphyry copper ores at Bingham: (1a) "Disseminated bornite-gold ores" and (1b) "Vein realgar-gold ores". Type 1a predates Type 1b and may represent the earliest introduction of gold into the Bingham system.

Summary of Bingham quick observations

1997-5-6  As at Superior and Bisbee, the copper-bearing and zinc-lead-bearing ores of the Highland Boy mine were mineralogically and temporally distinct (Boutwell, 1905, p. 200). At Superior, some (most?) zinc-bearing ores are related to the early skarn stage which was locally overprinted by main-stage copper-gold mineralization.
