Fierro, New Mexico: Memories of a Mining Town

The year was 1997. Hear the voices of the people from the mining town of Fierro who were concerned about the impacts from Cobre Mining Co.’s proposal to take down Hanover Mountain and expand the mine. Now more than ever, these community perspectives are important to listen to as Freeport-McMoRan has re-opened Cobre Mine after 20 years of dormancy.
