Kennecott advertisement from 1969

Check out this Kennecott advertisement from the 1969 Polk Directory.

Note that this is before I-80 was constructed on the west side of SLC.

And before the construction of that massive Kennecott tailings pond that is now just off of Utah Route 201 (2100 South).

At the time (and for quite a while) the Bingham Canyon Mine was the largest man-made open pit mine on the planet.
