Trinity Mine pit

Trinity Mine pit
A silver mine that was active briefly in the late 1980s. It hit sulfide mineralization at depth, which was then uneconomic. With Ag prices currently north of $30/oz, though, there's talk of reopening it.

Very interesting, Steve. Hope it pans out well.

I read about the proposals to reopen it in late 2012, and nothing's happened since (was out there in October). It's presumably because silver prices now are nowhere near $30/oz!
