More about this newspaper

Started in March 1891, the Belt Mountain Miner focused on the mining operations in the Barker district. Published by the Miner Publishing Company, T. W. Thompson was the manager, treasurer and controlled the editorial columns while E. B. Shafer was the secretary of the company and ran the publishing department. The Miner was a major proponent of silver. The last issue on January 27, 1894, optimistically declared that they were temporarily suspending publication. They hoped the price of silver would increase enough for the mines to reopen. Sadly the newspaper would never return.
