ASARCO Mine Tour

Tour an Open-Pit Copper Mine and the Process of Making Copper - Trip price $11

The first stop on your tour is the Open-Pit Viewpoint on the south rim of the Mission Mine. The viewpoint is securely fenced for your safety, and it has four binocular telescopes to provide a close-up view of the trucks and shovels working in the mine. Each year the mine has the capacity to process about 260,000 tons of copper concentrates which yields 132,700,000 pounds of copper and 1,234,000 ounces of silver. Copper ore is ground into a powder so the copper minerals can be separated by the froth flotation process. One of the AMDC staff members will explain what happens at the mill and answer your questions.

Register by March 6, 2018, no refunds after that date.

Meet at the Camera Club at 8:15AM for carpooling, and depart at 8:30AM. Carol Gautsch will be the trip leader. For questions call Carol at 520-347-4917 home, or 406-850-2742 cell, bratcat08@gmail.com.
