"This thesis does not so much attempt a detailed report on the geology of the disseminates ores of Bingham Canyon as a more particular description of the underground methods of mining these ores as well as studies in drilling, sampling, etc. Steam shovel mining was studied to some extent but almost all the data for the following pages has been derived from the Boston Consolidated Underground Mine and the Old Utah Mine. The Boston consolidated, especially, has been studied for this mine is the largest and, at late date, was the only underground porphyry mine working, the Old Utah having been shut down on account of labor troubles"--Introductory, page 3.
