Dyer

Dyer is a ghost town in the Uintah Mountains that was supported by copper mining operations between 1887 and 1900. Named for Lewis R. Dyer who opened up the mines

Although the mines have not been operating since 1900, many residents firmly believe that copper in paying quantities is still to be found there.
