ASARCO Mineral Discovery Center & Mine Tours

Copper is at the source of our modern society. It’s a primary metal used in the hospitals where we were born, the electricity in our homes, the tools that farm our food, and the transportation that powers our next adventure. ASARCO invites you to take its free self-guided tour of the center’s indoor and outdoor exhibits, which walks through the copper transformation process. Then join the mine tour (paid) for a firsthand look!

This is Arizona’s only public tour of an operating mine and one of few in the country! Just another fact Arizonans can be proud of.
