Would visit annually,not the place it use to be, They use to have the best of tour guides, They tell me they left or got fired. I found it sad when I learned this facility and operations is about money, not the good ol employees who really made a difference and enjoyed what they were doing! Thank you Bisbee copper mine tours.
Very nice place where you get an up close look at a mining operation. Big drag lines, dump truck and dozers. Not often one gets to see the copper mining process.
