The Fern Mine
July 2004 by Ron WendtSharp, jagged mountains shot up around me as I slowly bumped my way, in my old Chevy pickup, up the boulder strewn mining road to the Fern Mine. The Fern Mine is situated on the west side of Archangel Creek, where several other hard rock mines once operated.
The prospects I found are known to carry heavy chunks of gold, sometimes in quartz, ironstone, or many times a rusty-looking type of shale covering.

Surging global demand for copper has breathed new life into the mining industry in Chingola, a short drive from the Congolese border on top of some of the richest copper deposits in the world.
In this review of precious and base metal deposits in Arizona, it is apparent that several significant mines and mineral deposits occur in eastern Arizona, and there is considerable potential for new discoveries.
