General and former President Ulysses S. Grant on October 28, 1879, after coming out of Mackay's Big Bonanza Mine was quoted as saying,
"That's as close to hell as I hope I'll ever get".


[Temperatures in the deepest reaches of the mine often were in the range of 120 degrees due to ever present hot subterrainean water]
