“Visitor center is no longer standing...”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

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 machine. not any longer, they found so much gold and copper up there they don't want anyone to go up there. how much land are they gona need in the future?

“So amazing!”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

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..

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 20 March 2013

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.

“A must see for young to old”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

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

“A must see for Boys”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

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.
