Held the second Tuesday of every month, the, tours leave Bayard City Hall at 10 a.m. and take visitors on an hour and half to two hour tour of vari- ous old mining sites and headframes around the Mining District communities of Hanover, Fierro, Bayard, Vanadium, Santa Clara and Hurley. The tours were one of the first things the committee began after the group was founded back in 2005. "Our group started in May 2005 and the first tour was .in Octo- ber 2005," said Terry Humble, a retired mine worker, historian, and one of the founders of the group. Humble was born in Santa Rita, originally named Santa Rita del Cobre (Saint Rita of the Cop- per), which once had a popula- tion of 6,000, and is now nonex- istent as it was swallowed up by the giant open pit copper mine. He spent nearly 40 years work- ing in the mining industry, first in the underground mines, off and on for about six years, then 36 years at the open pit Chino Mine. After retiring in 2001, Humble realized for as many years as he spent working in mining, there was still a lot he didn't know. "I had so many questions," he said. He had a friend who had two uncles who worked in the under- ground mines when they were young men. "And when they would come back to visit, they would get to arguing about the names of the mines, as old people will," Humble said. "So, I made a map of the area withthe names of the underground mines to give to my friend so his two uncles wouldn't argue so much. When I showed that map at one of our very first meetings, everybody in the group expressed an interest," he said. "They wanted me to take them on a tour, and that's how the tours started." The idea behind the tours was -- in addition to educating folks on mining history -- to pro- mote tourism in Bayard and the Mining District. Folks couldgo on a tour, and afterward have lunch in one of Bayard's restau- rants. Humble, who has kept track of every tour he has given, said the tours attract a mix of locals who have an interest in mining history and a lot of people new to the community who have moved here in the last few years and want to know more about their local mining history. "People are always driving by those headframes that you see on the highway and just don't know a thing about the mine," he said. The tours also had an added benefit, Humble said. "The tour and our commit- tee are responsible for those headframes still being there," Humble said. "Phelps Dodge and then Freeport had plans to take those headframes down and County mining remediate the area. They tore one down, but when they found out we had a tour, they left all of the other ones in place for the people to see. A couple had been torn down previously that we didn't have a chance to save, but at least four of those major headframes would not be there if not for the cooperation of our group and Freeport-McMoRan." On the tour, Humble passes out brochures, one that has a list of the underground mines, and a map, and talks about the his- tory of mining in the region. Other members of the com- mittee include Bayard resident Jovita Gonzales, president and spokeswoman; Becky Shumway, also of Bayard; Mary Binder, who works at Bayard City Hall; and Peter Crum, from Mimbres. Cecilia Bell is also a member. The group meets every other month or so, and meet- ings are open to the public. The next meet- ing will be held May 11 at the Bayard Library at 10 a.m. In addition to the tours, the committee also created Mine Park, across from the library, which features a variety of mining equipment and was installed around 2009. , "One of the future things we would like to do is to create a mu- seum," Humble said. While the old Bayard railroad depot could be an ideal spot for that, Humble said, the city owns the old depot but Southwest Railroad owns the land. "We can't get a grant to do anything with the building since the city doesn't own the land," he said. The Bayard Beautification Committee has been working on restoring the old depot, scrap- ing off the old paint and get- ting ready to repaint it, complete with the old logo. To learn more about the mining history of the region, reserve a seat on the bus for this Tuesday's tour by calling Bayard City Hall at 537-3327. So far seven people have signed up. The maximum capacity is 12. The $5 donation goes to the committee. Half pays for the Corre Caminos bus and the other half defrays cost for the group's brochures. Our Best Dear Ever!
