A Currency of Faith
Taking Stock in Utah County’s Dream Mine

Kevin Cantera

IN MAY 2007, A CROWD ASSEMBLED in the convention hall at the veterans’ center in Spanish Fork, Utah, for the Relief Mine Company’s annual stockholders’ meeting. An almost festive air preceded the official meeting, as about one hundred people gathered, investors in the company who had come to hear the annual financial report on the 113-year-old mining venture. Chatter and laughter filled the hall; conversations sprang up where they had left off at last year’s stockholders’ meeting. The majority of stockholders were older people from the surrounding area in southern Utah County, where the Relief Mine is located. A handful of stockholders came from farther away; some were from Salt Lake City, about fifty miles to the north, others from neighboring Idaho. Nearly all were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or Mormons. Many brought children and grandchildren, some of whom ran between rows of chairs, playing tag. Relief Mine stock, since becoming available in 1909, has become something of a family heirloom, passed down from one generation to the next, and the meeting had a distinct family feel. One family had a table of books for sale, including an eschatological history of the Relief Mine. A husband-andwife team moved about the crowd, striking up friendly conversation and handing out brochures describing various end-time prophecies
