    Copper Mine in Picacho Mountains

    Just east (1.8 miles) of the petroglyphs that I posted is a copper mine PeteyGirl and I found.
    Here is what it looks like on Google Earth.

    I went to the grocery store. There was a sign on the door. No food or drinks inside...... so I went home.

    (I use UTM for the coordinates) Go to options in Google Earth to change to your preference. ╦╦C

    The following PDF file is VERY complete if you wish to learn more of the pet locations and other info regarding the pre-historic indian locations in the Picachos. Download it for free.... 270 pages. Some of it is difficult to follow because it is heavy on scientific terminology but well worth the download. ╦╦C

    Interesting place, but I'm thinking it was kind of a short lived boot strap operation, maybe active as late as the 1950s. In the mine at worked at in the 70s and early 80s many of the senior miner's, with already as much as 30 plus years by the time I got there, had before served in Korea, Vietnam and one old fella even finished his time in Europe as a German pow after his B17 was brought down. The term, Just, jerry-rigg the sob, was often used back then and you knew what it meant. Now days it describes something you should not have done as an improper fix to a situation. Heck you might even be subject to corrective action if you used the practice of jerry rigging. I think today it describes it was something that slipped through the approval of the engineering department.
