Almost every material used in modern civilization is derived from one of the earth's natural mineral resources. Arizona contains many ore deposits bearing copper, silver and gold and has been a leading copper-producing state since the 19th century, with large open-pit mine operations around the state that produce significant amounts of copper ore every year. Learn about the formation and properties of ore deposit minerals, mining methods and ore processing.
