Ore loading chute, Tomsich Butte Uranium Mine, Utah
Utah

Looking down the ore loading chute at Tomsich Butte Uranium mine.

"Tomsich Butte. This mining area was first developed by John Tomsich and W. J. Hannert in 1951, who discovered uranium ore and staked claims surrounding the butte. These are also known as the Dirty Devil uranium mines, and it was recorded that Hannert and Tomsich “each staked every other claim as their own” (Emery County Archives 2008:101). According to Owen McClenahan, “They were going it alone each claim – what a hell of a way to do. I felt that partners should trust one another down to the last crying dime.” McClenahan also said that after John Tomsich’s claims no longer produced ore he committed suicide, although Hannert continued to mine uranium in one of Tomsich’s claims after the fact (Emery County Archives 2008:101). One popular legend states that Tomsich and his dog drank water from the poisoned Muddy Creek, which eventually killed his dog (Massey and Wilson 2006:472)."
