queen mine

January 19, 2010

On the road from Las Cruces to Phoenix, we stopped in Bisbee to tour the Queen Mine.  A genuine retired miner led our tour 1200 feet down the shaft, where he explained all the tools and equipment on display.  Everyone wore safety gear (below) and got to see the natural ore, still in the walls and ceiling of the stope.  Overall, this detour was certainly worth taking.
