    Default North Star Mine

    Another no history site: the North Star Mine in the Pichacho Mountains. Anyone know much about the site? I found blueish rock, so obviously it was copper at one point in time.

    It looks like you have a springtime going out there.

    Very close to the North Star Mine is an old test hole that gives the Deep Well Ranch Road it's name. The hole was drilled by Phillips Petroleum and goes to a depth of 18,013 feet!!! Apparently 100 truckloads of equpment were brought in and the drilling went on during 1980-81. No sightings of Hydrocarbons were found at all. The drill hole is apparently the deepest hole ever drilled in ARizona. I am a native of southern Arizona and have been out in that area many times. I never heard anything about this project while it was going on--didn't even hear locals talking about it. For those of you who play the geocaching game, there is a geocache near the well-site and there is a photo of the drill rig on the geocaching info sheet. Needless to say it was pretty big. Concrete building foundations still exist today. The geocache listing is GC11V2Y.
