A slide presentation was put together by Emery County on the Swasey History on the San Rafael Swell. This is Slide #23, Cooker at ZCMI Mine. "When mining didn't pay so very well at the ZCMI mine, they turned to moonshine." This was a mine that the Swaseys started, that was really a front for their moonshining business. According to Monte Swasey, it was named ZCMI, which stands for "Zion's Collection of Mormon Idiots."
