Mining in Arizona

Guest Speaker for March meeting
John Lacy, a Tucson mineral lawyer and legal historian, will talk about the History of Mining in Arizona and how the changing mining and public land laws (or lack thereof) shaped the efforts of early prospectors and also led to some of the state’s more famous courtroom disputes.
John is a practicing lawyer with the firm of DeConcini McDonald Yetwin & Lacy and is also an ad-junct professor of law and mining and geological engineering at the University of Arizona. He is a former president of the Arizona Historical Society and currently serves as the president of the Arizona History Convention.
