Volunteers fence off abandoned mines near Havasu

LAKE HAVASU CITY - Using only sweat, muscles, hand tools and a lot of elbow grease, a dozen members of the Havasu 4 Wheelers recently inventoried, fenced and signed several abandoned mines on public lands in the Lake Havasu area including sites in California.

"Abandoned mines are one of the greatest hazards we have on public lands in Arizona," said Bureau of Land Management Lake Havasu Field Manager Ramone McCoy. "There are literally tens of thousands of mines left open in the West. We can't thank the Havasu 4 Wheelers enough for all their hard work making public lands safer."
