dc.descriptionThe "Big Hole" was the name miners gave to the United Verde mine, for with its many shafts, raises, large stopes, and miles of drifts and tunnels, it was one of the largest mines in the world near the turn of the present century. Several pictures are included with this presentation so that the interested visitor to Jerome may have a better understanding of how the "Big Hole" was made, and what the problems were. Also, visitors can become familiar with the great extent of the mine by examining the model in the Douglas Memorial Mining Museum at the Jerome State Historic Park. However, only by comparing this with the actual "Big Hole," the United Verde open pit to the north of Jerome, can the magnitude of the early day mining be fully appreciated. 34 p.
