Sunnyside Gold Mine (United States)

The Sunnyside Mine in Lake Emma Basin was discovered by George Howard and R.J McNutt in the summer of 1873. It was mined almost continuously from 1880-1930 by several owners, including the Thompson Brothers, Judge Joe Terry, and the United States Smelting and Refining Company. It was forced to shut down for a short period in 1920 due to the fall in metal prices after World War I and again in 1930 due to the stock market crash. It reopened and closed within a year in 1937-1938 due to a quick rise and fall in metal prices.
