1. Tri-State Mining District Ore Bucket Marker
Inscription.  The ore bucket and the shovel were the two symbols of the Tri-State mining era. The ore bucket transported the shoveled rock, lead and zinc ores to the processing mill. It is a simple fact that the entire mining economy fell into the hands of the shoveler one scoop at a time. We must never forget their strength, determination, work ethic and resourcefulness.
