The Kate Hardy Mine is located west of Forest City and Alleghany. Mining began in 8160 and purchased by Will Beggs in 1909 and managed by the Beggs family for many decades. The mine is now owned by the Brush Creek Mining Company, but is not being worked at this time. The shop, the ball mill and tables were locked up tight so we couldn’t get a peek inside. Fun place with several adits but only a little to explore.
