Sasco Smelter AZ
The SASCO Smelter was built in 1906 and was open for business in 1907 to process copper ore from surrounding mines including the Silver Bell Mine. In 1912, the company filed bankruptcy and closed until ASARCO mining bought it and reopened the smelter. The town and it's workers were decimated during the Spanish Flu epidemic in 1918 and the Silver Bell mine and Sasco smelter were closed in 1921. Only some free standing walls of the pub, the walls of the jail, the foundations of the smelter, chimney base and railroad trestles are left. The Sasco Cemetery is located northeast of the town site, next to the La Osa Ranch house. Sasco is a great place to go and explore but remember to take plenty of water and watch out for air soft marksmen.

Silverbell Mine Tour
A sideshow (!) in the Pawnee of the mine located 6 miles West of El Tiro Gliderport. High noise as flown in a side (forward) slip, to keep the left wing down throughout the turn. Never closer than 1000' to the ground. GoPro was mounted to the inside of the perspex door (using the suction mount). Unfortunately the vibrations of the perspex cause a rather blurred end result.

Maybe an early 20th century hoax, but, still rather puzzling. A Roman colony in the early Americas? This is the entire talk from the 1990 FortFest. The video is one of the 200+ talk maintained by the International Fortean Organization (INFO ) where DVDs are available http://www.forteans.com

A quick look at the southern edge of this range with the DJI F550. A difficult spot to drive in and launch from, this was a day full of rough terrain to scout out this place, full of flying and biting insects once there and most of the day shot for flying. Oh well, better than a good day at work. Music is Sevendust (Black).

SASCO Mining Town | Exploration and Photography in Southern Arizona 2017 Blog
Camera Crusades; The Adventure Continues... I was told about this place from a friend on facebook and after our discussion I was quickly on Google Earth tracking down its location. It looked like an interesting place to spend an afternoon. A few weeks later plans were made and we set out to explore the place. SASCO is an acronym for the Southern Arizona Smelting Company and the remains of the former town are still in decent condition. A perfect opportunity to photograph this place before its gone.

Sasco - Southern Arizona Smelting Company
Sasco is located North of Tucson. It once had a smelting plant, which served the local mines in the area until around 1919. Today all that remains are a few concrete foundations and remnants of the smelting plant, which gave the town it's name.

Red Rock Past and Present
This video hopes to capture the past to the present Red Rock, Arizona. It begins in the ghost town known as Sasco, where smelting ore from the Silverbell and Picacho mines was processed. 600 people lived and worked there around 1900 to 1910. The rock building was the hotel and the cemetary contains the remains of some of descendants of the town as well as the La Osa ranch family. Then we move on the the Custom Feed Lots where cattle are fed before market. We then fly over the more modern part of the Red Rock Community park. Complete with water slide and an awesome, pro designed skate park. Then it's to what most have seen only from the I-10 highway, the Red Rock bar. Sally, the owner stepped out to catch a peek at the filming. The Red Rock water tank along the rail tracks is also a prominent Red Rock icon.

2012, Special Citation - ASARCO LLC, Amer. Mining Hall of Fame
The Mining Foundation of the Southwest is proud to present a Special Citation to ASARCO LLC and its employees for their 100 years of copper mining and processing operations in Arizona. Beginning in 1912, the year Arizona became a state, the American Smelting and Refining Company opened the Hayden Smelter to process ore concentrates from the Ray Consolidated Copper Company mine located east-southeast of Phoenix -- a mine that was later purchased by ASARCO in 1986 and that has operated for more than 100 years. The smelter has operated nearly continuously since its foundation, updating technology through the years to increase efficiency and environmental controls. It is one of three remaining smelters in the United States and produces copper anodes primarily from internalconcentrates. In addition to the smelter, ASARCO has other facilities in the southwest including the Ray, Silver Bell, and Mission Mines in Arizona and the copper electro-refinery and rod plant in Amarillo, Texas. ASARCO has more than 2,700 employees including those at the Tucson corporate office, the mining and processing facilities, the Copper Basin Railway from Ray to Hayden, and Amarillo, TX. Annual production in 2011 was 409 million pounds of refined copper making ASARCO the third largest producer in the U.S. with significant reserves and exploration potential. ASARCO also produces sulfuric acid. Throughout its history, ASARCO and its employees have persevered during periods of economic downturn, and have striven to improve operational, environmental, and safety performanceIn 2009, ASARCO emerged from a 4-year bankruptcy proceeding that enabled its creditors to be paid in full plus interest and funds to be set aside to completely resolve its legacy environmental obligations. Owing to a strong copper market, ASARCO's copper production is at capacity, employment levels are high, and operations upgrades and expansions are in progress. ~~~~~~~~~~~ The purpose of the non-profit 501c(3) organization Mining Foundation of the Southwest based in Tucson, Arizona is to promote public understanding and education related to mineral resources and the mining industry, both in the U.S and abroad. More information is available at www.miningfoundationsw.org.

Urban Exploration - Sasco Ghost Town
Like, comment, and subscribe! So this is our explanation as to why we haven't been uploading very often.. We're exploring some new ideas for Youtube and may have new channel coming out soon that branches away from gaming. Jon is not in this video but Erik and I (Colin) are, along with a few other friends. However Jon did come out here with us once before this. We just came out here a second time to film it. Here's a sneak peak of what our new channel could be like! Enjoy! This is a ghost town called Sasco, just west of Red Rock. I encourage you to check it out if you are in the area, it's worth seeing! It was an old smelting town. So there is a factory, smoke stack, cave, hotel, jail, and some unidentified ruins scattered around. More info here: http://www.ghosttowns.com/states/az/sasco.html

Jack Handle Trail, Florence Arizona, Trailsoffroad.com
The Jack Handle Trail region is rich in minerals and has been a very influential and profitable region for well over a century now. There are many abandoned as well as active mines in the area. Along the route you will see a spectacular array of desert foliage. From massive saguaros, to towering cottonwoods hidden away deep in one of many secluded canyons that litter the region. But be cautious, this is a desert after all and it's not very forgiving, especially in the summer months. The entire Florence OHV area offers years of available trails to explore and challenge both man and vehicle. Also by visiting the visitors center in nearby historic Florence, AZ you can experience what early desert life was once like, through wonderful displays and a very informed staff. "The Town of Florence was founded in 1866 and is the sixth oldest European settlement in the state of Arizona. Florence is the county seat and is situated in the central portion of Pinal County, Arizona about 45 minutes away from the Phoenix and Tucson metropolitan areas. Three major transportation corridors run through Florence, which include Highway 287, Highway 79 and Hunt Highway. There are many prominent recreational landmarks and areas of interest in and around Florence. The Gila River is a prominent landmark that runs through historic Florence. The Gila River served as the northern border in the Gadsden Purchase in 1854. In addition, Box Canyon, Martinez Canyon, old Silverbell Mine, Coke Ovens and many other sites to the east of Florence provide visitors with fantastic scenic views and an opportunity to hike, explore, off-road, or otherwise enjoy the Sonoran Desert. Also in the area are the Casa Grande Ruins, Lost Dutchman State Park, Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park, Tom Mix Monument, and the Superstition Mountain Wilderness Area." source: http://www.florenceaz.gov/town-history http://www.trailsoffroad.com/trails/54-jack-handle
