ARIZONA Mines, Mills, Ghost Towns, Mining Museums & Tours

Arizona has a plethora of mines. If you would like to learn about these, visit museums, ghost towns and various rock hound and prospecting clubs. Before you begin your tour, get a couple of books and examine websites to assist you on your sojourn through the Arizona Outback.

Obtain a copy of Gold in Arizona -A Prospector's Guide. This book provides information on geology, mining history, ghost towns, mineralogy, and is the only book of its sort on Arizona that also provides GPS coordinates to mines in Arizona. So, you can search for these on Google Earth and plot access routes before you head for the hills. The 2019, 376-page book is available at Amazon. Or if you prefer, you can get a modified 2020 Kindle Edition. More information is available on my GemHunter website as well as on some of my blogspots. Be sure to look on the page on Rockhound Digs, Gems, etc, and you can follow me on my facebook page.
