Scope and Content

Mining records, which constitute a legal record, are kept by the county recorder for the purpose of monitoring and registering mining claims and operations. Mining records contain notices of location which provide the name of claim, locators, locations, legal description, and the mining district; proofs of labor which record the work performed at each mine annually; and deeds which record information affecting the title to the mining property. Until the law changed in 1897 mining districts in Utah had the option of electing their own mining district recorder. Many of the larger districts within Utah chose to elect their own recorders while claims and other records within smaller mining districts or in unorganized areas were filed with the county recorder. Beginning in 1897, all mining records in the county were filed with the county recorder.
