This incredible deposit was first discovered in 1875 during the construction of the famous Stoneman Grade, which connects present day Superior to Globe, Arizona. From 1877 to 1888 the famous Silver King Mine was in operation and during that brief span of time it produced an astounding $16,000,000 in silver.
