Here was the main destination of our drive in the desert, the Planet Mine. It is a former underground Cu-Fe-Ag-Au mine located about 57 miles north east of Quartzite, AZ. It was discovered in 1863 and straddles a tributary of the Williams River, which was bone dry during our visit. We parked at a location above the mine and walked down a wash to the mine workings and dumps.
