Sandy in Salt Lake County, Utah — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Using all four of its furnaces, the Mingo Smelter could produce enough metal to fill sixteen railroad cars each week. It was destroyed by fire in 1887 and was rebuilt in 1888.
The Mingo closed in April 1901 when the ores were depleted. This was one of the most successful of the old smelters that operated in Utah.
