Approximately 25,000 acres in area, the mining district is about 40 miles east of Silver City. Prospecting in the area be- gan in 1878 with the first rich piece of silver ore discovered four years later in 1882. In 1893, when the price of silver dropped and the mining boom ended, residents left the site but waste rock dumps and associ- ated shafts, adits, and other mine features remained. Indications of these past mining activities were evident in numerous sites throughout the Kingston area. Waste rock piles containing elevated levels of arsenic and lead were ex- posed on the surface on mul- tiples sites of the mining dis- trict. After extensive- environ- mental studies, the U.S. Forest Service started the clean up op- erations of mine sites in the Kingston Mining District on National Forest lands.. Currently, nine mines of 12 have been cleaned up. They have been consolidated on site or consolidated to a repository cell.

The high-energy film was called "Look Before You Leap" and was made by the Just Say Yes Foundation. Its purpose was to encourage pre-teens and teens to make good decisions regarding risky situations they often face. Two representatives from the Just Say Yes Foundation pre- sented the assembly, but the sky- diving stunts, and the film's host, Justin Lookadoo. were the main hit. The Just Say Yes Founda- tion focuses mainly on showing kids how to make good deci- sions in their lives. Instead of telling the kids "Don't do this" or "Don't do that", this foun- dation wants to encourage kids to say "Yes!" They don't en- courage kids to say yes to bad choices, of course, but instead to say yes to their futures and their plans. They teach kids about how one bad decision they lr make" now can affect their plansi for the future. The $600.000 Dallas, Texas" based project was brought to" Hidalgo County Students byl, Hidalgo Medical Services' Youth Power program.
