An underground copper mine consisting of one shaft located northwest of Hancock. The Oneco Copper Mining Company was organized in 1899 and began operations on the former site of the Hungarian Mine which was started in 1862. The Hungarian sunk an exploratory shaft 100 feet but abandoned it for unknown reasons. Once work on the site began as the Oneco, a new, deeper shaft was started in 1899. In one year, the shaft had reached a depth of 900 feet. The shafts were sunk on an unnamed amygdaloid lode between the Scales Creek Flow and the Hancock Fault. The company operated until 1913 when it closed for good; a victim of the great strike that gripped the area. Some piles still remain and minerals such as copper and kinoite included quartz can be found.
