History Southeast of Virginia Dale, the Brooklyn and O.K. mines were located in 1890 by John Burt. Burt and F. J. Botsford worked the mines until 1899. The Brooklyn Mining Company was formed in 1901 and was quite active until 1916. A one-inch pipeline was laid from Dale Lake to the mine for milling operations which used about 2,000 gallons of water for every ton of ore treated. Before the pipeline was laid, water was hauled from Cottonwood Springs
