Main gate

Apex Mine, Jarvis Peak, Tutsagubet Mining District, Beaver Dam Mts, Washington Co., Utah, USA

This is the main gate that blocks the road up to the mine. Maybe a half mile more, but steep.

The most productive pile

Apex Mine, Jarvis Peak, Tutsagubet Mining District, Beaver Dam Mts, Washington Co., Utah, USA

From the portal pad and looking up the pile to the main shaft. This was the most productive pile. You can see one of two chain link fences that were stretched across the pile. I think they were to trap boulders from rolling onto the pad.

Looking down and right of the poor rock pile

Apex Mine, Jarvis Peak, Tutsagubet Mining District, Beaver Dam Mts, Washington Co., Utah, USA

There is a trail on the dump that leads up to the ridge. It starts on the portal level. From the direction in the photo, east, the main dump is on the left and the Paymaster Mine is the next gulch on the right.

Looking down the dump

Apex Mine, Jarvis Peak, Tutsagubet Mining District, Beaver Dam Mts, Washington Co., Utah, USA

About half way up the poor rock pile and looking down. You can just make out the shed on the pad. There is a lower dump below the pad. Portal is on the pad level. A steep hike up a road to the right from the gate.

Dixie-Apex Mine

Apex Mine, Jarvis Peak, Tutsagubet Mining District, Beaver Dam Mts, Washington Co., Utah, USA

The main fenced shaft is just above center in this picture. Easy to see the results of an earlier wildfire.
