Copper Mining

I just passed through another mining town whose mine had apparently closed.

The woman who ran the motel I stayed in yesterday told me that a big chunk of the town's residents worked in the town's mining industry, and never left after the mine closed in the 80's. They've been here ever since, waiting for the mine to re-open.

I admit this is something I haven't had a lot of exposure to, and it's eye-opening to say the least.
