Raising the Daly West Headframe ZOOM Lecture Part 3 given by Brian Buck, Steve Issowitz, and Doug Ogilvy, October 20, 5-6 pm.
 
Park City Museum and Friends of Ski Mountain Mining History present a ZOOM lecture called 'Raising the Daly West Headframe Part 3' on Wednesday, October 20 from 5-6 pm. The Daly West mine was started by John J. Daly in the early 1890s and grew into one of the most notable mining operations in the U.S. West. It was accessed by a 2,100 foot deep shaft. In 1914 the wood headframe was replaced with a steel shaft headframe which stood for over a century. In May 2015, it collapsed into the shaft. Since then the Park City community has deliberated over what is next for the famous headframe. In 2020/2021 the Park City Municipal Government, Deer Valley Resort, and Empire Pass Master Owners Association cooperated to fix the damaged headframe and raise it up again near the original shaft location. This talk tells the story of raising the Daly West headframe and is a collaborative effort of Brian Buck, local geologist; Steve Issowits, Deer Valley Resort; and Doug Ogilvy, Empire Pass Master Owners Association. For more info and to register, go to parkcityhistory.org. Questions, email education@parkcityhistory.org.
