In 2005 we began the process of becoming expert ASARCO observers. This website aims to educate and inform about the history of this giant copper company and its pathway through the communities we've visited and learned about. Because ASARCO is not unique, we also explore the implications of its policies for workers, their unions, mining communities and the environment.

You can find an account of ASARCO's bankruptcy here.

You can find the ASARCO historical timeline here.
