Texas Trivia

About 1885 silver mining began in the Van Horn-Allamoore district of Hudspeth and Culberson counties and continued with periods of inactivity for some time. In 1892 some silver was produced on Little Llano Creek and at Mexican Diggings on Babyhead Creek in Llano and Mason counties. In 1889 traces of silver had been found on Silver Mine Creek in Gillespie County. In 1895 there was activity in the Cibola Mines in Presidio County, and in 1901-02 the Chinati and Montezuma Mines in Presidio County were developed. In 1902 the Hazel Mine, the second largest producing mine in the state, closed after producing $60,000 worth of silver.
