Searching for Arizona Gold
The Santa Catalina Mountains, north of Tucson, Arizona has long been mined for gold, copper and other precious metals.
Early mining activities have been dated from the late1600s, when the Spaniards ruled the land and mined the mountains.
The Arizona Gold Rush began in the 1880s. Over a century of news, literature and film paints the portrait of gold and silver bullion treasures in the Santa Catalina Mountains in Southern Arizona.
