Pages of History: 100-year-old mine relics on display

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, March 1952.

Displayed in Del Ponte’s shoe store window are century-old relics of the Alta mine, now being reactivated in Del Norte’s Low Divide area. The old work tools and ores were brought in by three miners, John I. Noce, Ralph E. Yoder and J. M. Reinarz.

Among items on display is an ore softener with hand-turned bearings. It was made of hardwood and is still firm and solid, although dug from a depth of 200 feet. The copper ores were discovered at various underground levels.
