Visited this site years ago and was amazed at the size. Interesting to learn about the process and watch the trucks. Recently saw it from the air as we flew into SLC. So impressive. I think boys would live the big trucking equipment.

Haven't visited there for a while but when we took our younger family at the time, it was a great experience. I understand now that they have improved their surroundings.

The 2d largest open-pit copper mine in the world experienced a significant earthquake. The tourist center was destroyed and operations were shut down. We are all waiting to see how long it will take to resume operations. Mother nature strikes again!

it slid off the mountain and is now rubble in the bottom under millions of tons of earth. Butterfield canyon is also closed and fenced, new fence and they wont let you even walk up the closed road. nor ride a bike to get away from the city. at on time you could go up on a ATV or snow... More

A giant hole. It is something to behold, that there could be this much earth moved, and this much ore and wealth brought to Utah. dont like the left overs much but it is the part of the deal. Worth the look..

The copper mine is located on the south western edge of the Salt Lake Valley. Not conveniently located, but definitely worth the trip. The copper mine is amazing. My young boys loved watching the massive trucks travelling into and out of the mine. The small museum is interesting and informative.

The machinery, the noise, the whole experience is worth it. Remember to check the times of the mine as it is not open often.

This is a great place for boys and girls to see the big machines at work. I would take a class, especially a home school group. The tractors are amazing.

Well if you are from out of state you need to see this place. When I was growing up I was told it was the biggest man made hole in the world and you can see it from space I also remember the town that is under the tailing pile the towns name was Lark
