Albert "Powder Face" Moore opened the Moore Mine around 1856. His nickname came from a disfigurement of his face that occurred when explosives he was working with went off prematurely.
The mine was operated on and off since. It was idle until 1921 when it was reopened by the Moore Mining Company, who operated the mine until 1929. Production amounted to about $ 564,624.
