History

Mercur is a historical hard rock mining ghost town in Tooele County, Utah, United States. A distant memory of the Old West, Mercur became one of Utah's first mining districts in 1893. At one point, the town was home to well over 5,000 people. However, in 1902 a fire ravaged the town and it never recovered. By 1913, the last mine closed.
