Originally located as the "Wyoming Mine", the original owners failed to perform the required annual assessment work and lost control of the property. It was relocated several years later by John McChrystal and Owen Donahue, who renamed the mine the "Eagle and Blue Bell". McChrystal operated the mine profitably until the collapse of silver prices in 1893, at which time operations were suspended. The property was purchased by a group of Boston investors who incorporated in 1897 as "The Eagle and Blue Bell Mining Co." Controlling interest in the property was subsequently acquired by the Bingham Mining Co. of Boston, MA, (which also owned significant copper mines in Bingham Canyon, UT).
Between 1897 and 1916, the mine produced more than 220,000 tons of ore, yielding 35,385 ounces of gold, 3,217,676 ounces of silver, 1,413,102 pounds of copper, 33,796,415 pounds of lead, and 22,856 pounds of zinc.
