Copper Queen Mine Entrance, Bisbee, Arizona
Arizona
The Copper Queen Mine in Bisbee, Arizona is located in one of the most productive mining areas of the world. Before the mines closed in 1975 the mines had produced metals of the value of over $24 billion dollars in 2010 prices. This staggering amount of money came from the production of 8,032,352,000 lbs of copper, 2,871,786 ounces of gold, 77,162,986 ounces of silver, 304,627,600 lbs of lead and 371,945,900 lbs of zinc. Over 50,000 people visit the mine operated by the City of Bisbee to help the unemployed miners. Visitors can ride one of the original mine trains and wear yellow slickers with miner’s hats and a light source. The original mining claim was staked in 1877 and found ore containing 23% copper with gold and silver. Normal mining operations are conducted in mines with only 3% or 4% copper. This extraordinarily profitable mine is still an Arizona attraction.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
