They have a site set up for visitors, like us. It is will worth the time and effort to take a ride up to the visitor's over-look area. As you will see such as the photo above.
It is a open-pit copper mine. It includes Liberty Pit, Vetern-tripp Pit and the Ruth Pit.
They work 24-7. They have produced nearly a billion dollars in copper, gold and silver.
The mounds you see from the highway is waste rock that has been removed to uncover the ore.
DesertDale is out on his KTM, here at Illpah. It is cloudy but real warm.
Enjoy life, what ever you are doing, enjoy.
