Copperton was established in 1926, by the Utah Copper Company as a residential area for its employees. As of the 2010 Census, Copperton has a population of 826. Copperton is the only mining town remaining for the Bingham Canyon Mine after Lark was torn down in 1980. Currently, only a handful of residents work for the mine. The town’s history is directly linked to the mine.
