A Great State of Copper Summary

Here is a link to an excellent article on copper and copper in Arizona. It conveys a lot of necessary information in an exceptionally concise and engaging manner, and I highly recommend reading it! 

Copper is not just a family endeavor for some: be it State, Company, or close relations... It is an endeavor that benefits everyone, everywhere.

In my humble opinion, art is rightfully the least among uses of copper, yet art as a whole has from the dawn of humanity been intrinsic to the evolution of technologies... and continues to inspire us all in countless ways.
