The Apex mine of the Money Creek Mining District lies in a glacial cirque at an elevation of 3800 feet. Apex consists of five adits totaling 2950 feet of haulage tunnel, plus an estimated 5000 feet of development in stopes and (13) raises. Adit 1, 100 feet long, cannot be seen on the surface.
The Apex deposit was discovered during 1892 by John Maloney, an engineer for the Great Northern Railway. It was one of the first discoveries in the district. The lower-grade material was used to
backfill stopes, and the higher-grade material was hauled to the
aerial tramway for shipment (Patty, 1921). The total value of
production was about $300,000 at historic metal prices.
