Asarco/Duval Mine –
Wednesday, January 18. This is a guided, small passenger bus tour with disembarking stops. We will learn the “whats and hows” of the copper mining business – the history of the boom, bust, and controversial environment today. The mine is approx. one hour South of here so we will carpool in the Views lot at 9:30 AM for the 11:00 tour. There will be time before and after to explore the inside exhibits. A restaurant for lunch will not be offered, so plan on bringing your own lunch/snack so that we can gather at the lovely picnic tables afterwards. Group size is limited to 26. Cost is $15/pp. Tour closed.
