  • General 2015-05-10
    The mine was operated by the Magma Copper Company before being bought out by BHP Billiton, which ultimately closed it. Over 700,000,000 tons of ore were extracted using the block caving method. It was a large disseminated copper sulfide deposit mined with five shafts each over 3,000 feet (910 m) deep. Headframes are over 60 metres (200 ft) high. The operation of mining was divided into mining the hypogene sulfide mineralization (chalcopyrite) at depth and the shallow supergene (chalcocite) and oxidized deposit (chrysocolla, malachite, native copper and cuprite). The entire large site is now undergoing reclamation.
