With the arrival of the railroad in the Thermopolis area, the Owl Creek Coal Company was formed to exploit coal in the area north of Thermopolis. The mining claims were patented to numerous individuals commencing about 1906. The claims were being sold to a group of Long Island, New York, investors headed by Lawyer Wilberforce Sully, Lawyer Patrick T. Wells, Samuel W. Gobo and George W. Daily, a law clerk for Sully. Sully was the owner of two malting works in New Jersey. The claims were then conveyed to the Owl Creek Coal Company and others by Gebo. Thus was formed the Town of Gebo. Gebo was located about 11 miles north of Thermopolis.
ABOUT THE MINING DISTRICT
There are multiple means of pulling gold out of streams, rivers and mines. Thermopolis Wyoming gold panning is one of the more tried and true and is as much for finding good spots for gold as it is for pulling the precious metal out. Panning is the process of putting dirt or earth known as placer and separating any heavier materials out of the lighter sand. It is popular for this ease of use as just about anyone can get into Thermopolis Wyoming gold panning.
