Florence Copper Project Visitation

05/22/2017 21:48 | AAC Admin (Administrator)

Hello – We would like to invite representatives of the professional archaeological community to visit the Florence Copper Project on Monday, 12 June 2017. As some of you know, WCRM has been conducting archaeological investigations within the Escalante Ruin Group in advance of a pilot Production Test Facility since August of last year. We would like to share our findings with you, and will welcome your input concerning the work we’ve accomplished to date.

Appended is a map showing the project location. A WCRM representative will meet you at the gate and provide directions. The roads are graveled and can easily accommodate passenger vehicles. We ask that you park and gather at the Administration Building between 9 and 9:30 AM for a brief introduction. A bus will be available to transport you throughout the mine property. At 10 AM we will proceed to the project area where we will spend about an hour touring the excavations. At 11 AM we will drive a short distance to see the platform mound that was excavated by Dave Doyel in the early 1970s.

We should have you back to the Administration Building by noon.

Be aware that it will be hot and dusty. Wear sturdy footgear, and bring a hat. If any of you own safety vests, please bring them along. We will have bottled water available.

Please RSVP via email at by 1 June to let me know how many people from your organization will be attending. We look forward to seeing all of you.
