During the 1930'2 a boater passing through the Canyon discovered a cave which later was found to be rich with "Guano", bat droppings. This material was rich with nitrogen and very useful as fertilizer. The U.S. Guano Corporation had purchased the mining rights in 1957 and began to construct the Tramway to extract the Guano from the mine. Utilizing cable that spanned the Canyon at 7,500 feet and the use of cable cars for both the guano and the miners it was mined until early 1960. A few months later the cable was damaged by an Air Force Jet's tail and never re-opened. The cable head-house remains as well as some remnants at the cave and is now a tourist destination at Grand Canyon West.
