World renowned mining and metallurgical engineer, eminent business executive, benefactor and loyal friend of Utah and its people.
Guided by an inspired vision, he applied and developed processes for the beneficiation of low grade porphyritic ores and originated copper mining methods, revolutionary in character and on a scale never before attempted, resulting in the production world-wide of new wealth in the form of precious metals, copper and other essential minerals in quantities never before attained in the history of man.
He assembled the now world famed Utah Copper Mine in nearby Bingham Canyon and in the course of his research implemented and developed that property from a body of supposedly worthless porphyry rock into the world's greatest copper producer of all time.
His civic services with relation to the great economic and political projects in which his unerring judgment and masterful direction provided superb leadership, have left their imperishable imprints upon the growth and development of the state of Utah.
As an everlasting memorial and outward expression of the love and appreciation which the people of Utah entertain for him, the National Society of the Sons of Utah Pioneers, with the cooperation of the Utah Copper Division of Kennecott Copper Corporation, presents to the State of Utah this statue of Daniel Cowan Jackling.
