My first visit to Mount Hope was in the mid 1960's and the town Copper mine was still
operational. They used to pump water through the main mine and then leech out the
copper oxide which attached itself to scrap sheet metal in tanks above the ground
which was then removed as a very heavy black powder. Then sent away for processing
from there. The main mine is all filled in now.
