dc.descriptionGreat mineral wealth has been paramount in the development of Arizona. It has attracted attention since the first Spanish explorations of the Southwest. The lure of precious metals brought many of the early American settlers to the Territory, and mining has been responsible for the establishment of many Arizona cities and towns. Ajo, Bisbee, Clarkdale, Clifton, Douglas, Globe, Hayden, Jerome, Miami, Morenci, San Manuel, Superior, Tombstone, Ray, and numerous other centers of population have owed their existence to mining, milling, or smelting. Several agricultural communities were started and grew as a direct result of the requirements for adequate food supplies of the booming mining camps. In addition to the professional prospectors and miners who are seeking minerals for their commercial value, an increasingly large number of persons collect minerals solely for their beauty and rarity.
