Little Green Monster

The Little Green Monster (112.178W 40.281N) was a phosphate mine in central Utah producing about 920 tons per year during the war years. The earliest mines in the area were opened in the late 1880s but were consolidated into the Little Green Monster in 1937. The mine also produced turquoise (variscite), a semiprecious form of copper aluminum phosphate, and was known by 1940 to be a source of scandium, though this rare metal had no industrial uses at the time.
