Other Oquirrh Mountains Pictures

Kennecott Utah Copper's Bingham Canyon Mine has produced more copper than any mine in history. The mine is 2.75 miles across at the top and 3/4 mile deep. The mine can be seen by the space shuttle astronauts. By 2015, it will be more than 500 feet deeper. The typical new home contains about 500 pounds of copper. On average, each person in the U.S. uses about 30 pounds of copper every year. Copper is used in everything from cars and computers to cell phones. So unless you live in a grass house, have no phone and walk everywhere, shut up with the wining about the mine hypocrites.
The Visitors Center is open April through October, weather permitting from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. - seven days a week. Cars will not be admitted later than 7:15 p.m. No reservations are necessary. A $5 per car admission fee for local charities is charged.
Maybe Peak 7500 has been shaved off enough that it no longer has it's 300 foot prominence?
