The DMC Image of the Month
The DMC image of the month was acquired over the Pima County, Arizona on the 20th March 2017.
In the north of the image is the city of Tucson in Arizona. Located 18 miles south of Tucson is the ASARCO mission mine. The mines are owned by an American smelting and refining company who produce copper and other metals. The quarry includes three copper mines, a copper smelter and two Solvent Extraction and Electrowinning (SX/EW) sites.
To the east of the mine you can find the Town of Sahuarita situated in the Green Valley and to the west you can discover the Sierrita Mountain range.
