Well i had a great trip this last saturday and saw some neat stuff. however i have some questions about a mine just west of palo alto, it is on Dalados picture albums . The mine has lots of AMD coming out of it, and there is a pump there that looks like it pumps it into a truck loading station. Why do they load it onto tank trucks? Also what is the history of this mine and who owned it?

the pump is there because they are working that bank and are using the water for dust control as far as i understand. Don't know anything else about it though

That mine was part of the Salem if I'm not mistaken.
