We drove up to view the mine in August. I have to admit, the drive was very nerve-wracking. My husband drove and did fine, but the narrow, switch-backing road made the rest of us... read more

Hi The Reo Tinto KCC mine in Copperton utah is now closed to visitors! The visitors center was pulled off the hillside just days before a major landslide came down!

There are two mountain roads to the mine overlook (what a view!). One has you on edge and the other not so much. The most narrow and hazardous is the road in most of the Trip Advisor reviews. Some of the reviews refer to the road through Bingham Canyon. Bingham Canyon is closed as a result of the land-slide. Driving... More

We drove up to view the mine in August. I have to admit, the drive was very nerve-wracking. My husband drove and did fine, but the narrow, switch-backing road made the rest of us very nervous. Once up top, the view of the mine and surrounding mountains was beautiful. We all enjoyed it very much. The drive back down was... More

We wanted to take our girls to see this wonder and found out the visitors center was closed. We found a way. In our little Volvo S40, not a 4 wheel drive, we took off on our journey. If you go to the entrance of the mine that takes you to the visitors center, instead of turning in continue S... More

This is an incredible mine... Such beautiful colors! So sad the visitor center is closed. I'm sure it would have been a highlight of our trip.

Our foreign exchange student wanted to see the Bingham Copper Pit. Reading reviews on TripAdvisor, I remembered the visitor's center had been destroyed in 2013. But, I read a review that said they "had their life in their hands" driving up a dirt road to get to the view. So, we took off in our 4 wheel drive to see... More

If you're in the Salt Lake City area, a visit to the Bingham Canyon "open cast" mine is a surprisingly fascinating thing to do. The scale of the work will blow your mind - and talking of blowing things up, you could be lucky enough to see some of the blasting going on. The vehicles used here for the mine... More

We couldn't get into the mine because it was closed due to a landslide that destroyed the visitor center, However, the exterior hillside of the mine was awesome with many different colors. Wish we could have been able to tour the mine.

I travel to Utah for a few weeks every year for business and was sadenned to hear about the landslide that closed the visitor center inside the mine. Last year we found a bus tour company online (City Sights Tours) that does a 4 hour tour to a little-known overlook at the top of the mine. The road is very... More

Visited this site years ago and was amazed at the size. Interesting to learn about the process and watch the trucks. Recently saw it from the air as we flew into SLC. So impressive. I think boys would live the big trucking equipment.
