Utah is best known for the Bingham Canyon mine which over a period of more than a century became the largest open-pit mine in the world. Park City was an important silver mining district and now a world-class ski resort. During the 1950's, Utah was an important source of domestic uranium and Moab was one of a handful of Uranium boom towns that sprung up in the West during the Cold War.
