Short Description of Activity
Comments prepared for ADEQ Azurite Mine Aquifer Protection Permit in the Bradshaw Mountains. main Concern: toxic heavy metals leeching into groundwater and the Hassayampa River.
We are unable to visit the locations at this time because we are somewhat unsure where the sites are but found one from Mining maps which we believe might be the mill site. Road Conditions in the wintertime are unknown and might be muddy, snowy, and icy. We plan on going out in the springtime.
