Oro Blanco Mining District and Ruby, Arizona Research

Our research target is the Oro Blanco Mining District, along the south-central Arizona border with Mexico, and the surrounding area. We have collected data on all known mines (e.g., over 5000 location notices); mining documents and reports; relevant people, articles, letters, and thousands of photos. Al Ring is the keeper of this data, currently stored in over 150 two-inch three-ring notebooks and in over 25 gigabytes of computer memory. We are willing to share this data with interested parties just contact us. In the future we hope to make some of this data available via our website. Stay tuned. We are also always looking for new data!

This is a section that we will be working on as time permits.  We have so much information and photos that we will be adding to this site as soon as possible.
