Fighting fierce Apaches, and the heat, four prospectors barely eking out a living on the frontier find a fortune in silver. They discovered a King of a mine and so named it, The Silver King. It soon became one of the most famous mines of Arizona and the West. Its riches provided prosperity for many of the Arizona Territory's early pioneers.

It was the great American dream.

The mine was the catalyst that enabled settlement of the Central Arizona Territory in the 1870s. The Silver King produced between $7 and $17 million dollars between 1875 and 1887. The mining camps of Silver King and Pinal sprange up overnight to handle the flood of miners and speculators. Oh, they thought the silver would last forever....

This is the true story of the Silver King Mine.
