Old Coppermine TP
36° 37.852' & W 111° 26.884'
We have been past this old Trading Post a number
of times, but never actually stop here. There are a number of
structures here to look over. Please be warned! There is a large amount
of debris laying around, so you need to pay attention to where you put
your feet and hands. Also, if you have kids or pets you will need to
keep a close eye on them!
There is one structure that is covered
with drill cores. We don't know if they were for assaying the output of
the mine or not.
To get there take 89T that runs from Big
Lake Trading Post through Lechee to Gap. You will want a vehicle with
clearance when you turn off the highway on to the dirt road.The turn
coordinates are N 36° 37.843' & W 111° 26.632' head west. Go
about 1/4 mile and the TP will be on your right.
Remember, you are a guest on Navajo
Land, so don't mess it up for the rest of us.
