Near Yuma in Yuma County, Arizona — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Flora Temple Mine
The ore retrieved from the mine was Silver-Galena which mainly consisted of silver and lead. In 1979 when the prices of silver dropped, mining of Silver-Galena ore was no longer profitable. Maybe someday the Flora Temple Mine will flourish again.
