Ann Carpenter: Searching for gold
At the height of its production in the early 20th century, the Kelly Mine near Socorro, N.M., shown here in 1995, was well-known for producing a green-blue zinc carbonate mineral called smithsonite. But now, it stands largely abandoned and as a symbol of the mining days of old. Today, new technologies and policies, as well as scientific progress, are shaping a different view of mining.
