FRANK L. WILSON
The Deep Creek section of the State of Utah is destined to become one of the most important in the entire inter-mountain country, abounding, as it does, in mineral wealth and fertile lands. It has a greater variety of the useful metals than any other section of the United States, including gold, silver, copper, lead, zinc and iron; bismuth, tin, nickel, antimony, tungsten and molybdenum. This part of Utah is being rapidly developed and has already made fortunes for a large number of persons who had an early knowledge of the wonderful mineral resources of that section. Among the fortunate ones who have done wonders towards the development of the natural mineral resources of this rich country are the Wilson Brothers, who are prominent and favorably known mining operators and developers of many excellent mining properties in the Deep Creek District, including the well known Lucy L. Mining and Milling Company, which is probably the only mining company in the United States that has a large body of bismuth ore of commercial value; the Clifton Copper Belt Mining Company, the Seminole Copper Company, the Western Pacific Copper Company, and the Wilson Consolidated Mining Company.

Frank L. Wilson was born February 18, 1859, at London, Nemaha County, Nebraska. His father, William F. Wilson, was a general contractor and merchant, and was a native of Brighton, Pennsylvania. His mother, Anna M McKenzie Wilson, was born at Vanport, Beaver County, Pennsylvania. Mr. Wilson received his early education in the common schools of Nebraska, and later at the University of Nebraska. After leaving the University, Mr. Wilson turned his attention to mining, and in November, 1889, came to Salt Lake and commenced operations. He has been uniformly successful ever since, his principal interests at present being in the great Deep Creek section, where he has acquired several very valuable mining properties.

Mr. Wilson was married July 29, 1901, to Wilhelmina Rasmussen, who was a native of and educated at Ephraim, Utah. Four children have blessed their union, namely Frank L., Jr., Robert H., Helen J., and John H. Mr. Wilson is a resident of Salt Lake City, and a member of the firm of Wilson Brothers, mining operators, with offices in the Brooks Arcade.
