Scope and Content

The Iron County recorder created an index to notices of location for mining claims and related documents such as proof of labor, intent to hold a claim, certificates of location and leases. For each entry the recorder included the names of locators, the name of the claim, and the mining district in which it was located. For each entry he or she identified the type of document, the date of its creation and recording, and the book and page number where recorded.

Arrangement

Chronological by date.

Index volumes are in chronological order. Each index alternates pages referencing the names of mining claims and the names of claim locators, thus providing access either by the name of a claim or by the names of individuals who located claims. Thereunder, entries are alphabetically grouped and roughly chronological in order.
