    Default Tropico Mine

I cruised by the town early in the year and the rather extensive mine ruins were blockaded, with signs suggesting a movie crew was at work. My only source giving information about the town is rather dated, and suggests that the area is open to the public, with mine tours and the whole deal. Was the land sold to a private party in recent years?

    : LAST TIME I WAS THERE THEY WERE AUCTIONING OFF THE WHOLE TOWN RIGHT DOWN TO THE SIDEWALKS. THAT WAS AROUND 1980. BOUGHT SOME STUFF MYSELF. SOME BUILDINGS STILL REMAINED.

    : Thanks for the response. The source I mentioned, published in 1990, actually mentions the auction you write about. At the time of the book's publishing, however, it appears as if the mining structures were still preserved. Strange…
