Corey, another great site, thanks for sharing it!
Does your group only operate in Utah? Are you aware of any groups that are into mine preservation in Arizona? I'm in Gila County and know the Forest Service has been awarded some superfund money to begin closing off some mines. So far, the Tonto National Forest rangers say are only gating off adits and posting signs warning of danger, but I understand other areas will be bulldozing. We've got 700 plus mines in Gila County alone. They plan on leaving "most" structures standing, at their discretion with "public safety" in mind. Personally, I wish they'd leave them alone, it looks to me like a rudimentary fence and a warning sign would suffice?
Any input?
