Barrick Mining Museum

The museum features mining artifacts, pictures of current and former mines, and efforts to reclaim old mines. It tells the story of mining in Tooele County, from the gold rush era of the mid 1800s to recent and today’s mining operations in the Oquirrh Mountains.

Best of all are the scores of exhibited artifacts that give hint of the hard life miners and their families endured while extracting precious minerals and ores from the hills of Tooele County.
