  1. Mining at the Margins: Booms & Busts in Old Hachita, with Dr. Neal Ackerly

    Mining in the Old Hachita district began as early as 1871 and accelerated throughout the late nineteenth century. The initial focus was on extracting turquoise, but operations quickly shifted to an emphasis on gold and silver. Mining activities severely contracted following the Panic of 1893, limped along through the early 20th century, and eventually failed due to multiple factors. This presentation will examine the appearance, expansion, and eventual contraction of mining and the community of Old Hachita, based largely on period newspaper accounts.

    For the past 25 years, Dr. Ackerly has been actively involved in anthropology and archeology studies of land and water use systems in the Southwest. He claims to be nearly retired.
