A reader in Portillo Ridge took this photo of well/mining equipment and wondered what it was. I contacted Freeport-McMoRan and received this answer back today: "We are conducting maintenance on an existing well, with the current work expected to be completed this afternoon. However, the equipment will remain on site, as additional work is planned in a couple of weeks at the same location. That work is expected to take approximately three days to complete. We will be providing an update about this work to the Green Valley Council next week."
