There is a Place called:
COPPER MILE CAMP. It is on the RESERVATION. Near: N 36 50.100' W 109 3.673' off of Hwy 64.
Based, as the name indicates, on nearby copper deposits; after the deposits played out, it was a trading post for the Navajos of the area and located Northeast of The Gap. The camp might have extensive standing structures. The copper deposit was apparently originally discovered in the 1880s, and extracted by the Coconino Copper and Chemical Company, which used some immense and unique steam-powered half-tracks to pull the ore wagons to Flagstaff for processing.
Hope this helps!
