John Lacey: 500 years of Arizona Mining History

A fascinating and colorful history of mining in Arizona was presented at the March Historical League meeting by John Lacey. Gold, Silver, Copper, Lead and Uranium were discovered all over the state from Peeples Valley to Wickenburg, Morenci, Globe, Miami, Jerome and Bisbee. Thanks to the Southern Pacific Railroad in 1872, ores from mines in Arizona were now ready to reach markets all over the country.
