The town site of Unionville stretches for three miles and where the canyon narrows is where its mining district begins. The Arizona Mining Company yielded over 3 million dollars of Silver within this very canyon. Very little remains of the mines but a few dump piles but the mills, shafts, machinery, ore chutes, bins and wood head frames are long gone. Back in the day many of the miners were working day and night with their pick axes chipping away at the rich veins found along the canyons wall. The Chinese came here also to work the mines which caused allot of anger and hatred of many of the locals. Eventually this led to the Anti Chinese Union which was responsible for secretly ousting 35 Chinese miners from Unionville which led to 18 white miners being charged with federal crimes. The Silver boom lasted from 1861 to about 1872 those were the towns good years. However mining did continue as late as 1905 and eventually all the Silver veins were depleted which led to the town transitioning from its mining industry to agriculture. If you pay very close attention you will see that allot of iron is present in the steep walls of the canyon and volcanic spires. Before the town was erected the Indians in Virginia City showed some prospectors some rich Silver Ore then led them to this very location that you are seeing in this video. This led to Unionville's boom while much of the silver was processed here the higher grade ore was exported for processing in Sacramento California.
