Scope and Content

This alphabetical index for mining records was created by the Box Elder County Recorder to facilitate access to the Mining Records and Mining Notices of Location. The series provides the instrument number, name of locators or grantors, name of claim or grantee, name of district or location, kind of instrument, when filed, record book, page number and remarks. Beginning with Book D1, the index contains two sections, the direct and the inverse. The direct section is alphabetical by the name of the locator or grantor while the inverse section is alphabetical by the name of the claim or grantee.


Chronological, thereunder alphabetical

Research Note

Record Books A and B, of Series 84097, contain an index within the volumes. Indexes D1 and D2 also facilitate access to Record Book A of Series 84097. A certain number of pages were alloted to each letter in the index and after the allotted space was filled, the index for that particular letter was continued on blank pages at the end of the book. As a result, researchers will need to check the index under both the alphabetical letter and at the end of the index to ensure finding all related records. Researchers should consult all the indexes to ensure finding all related materials for the mining operations they are researching.
