The Bingham Canyon Mine Visitors Center is an adventure for the whole family! Explore their hands-on exhibits, take a picture next to the big tyre, and watch the in-put crusher turn tons of copper into the size of soccer balls. It's a giant educational toy box!
Due to monitored geotechnical movement of the Kennecott Utah Copper Bingham Canyon Mine over the winter, the Visitors Center and overlook plaza will not reopen as scheduled April 1. Short- and long-term plans are underway to relocate the Visitors Center.
Follow Kennecott Utah Copper prior to your visit on facebook, twitter or at Kennecott.com/visitors-center for updates on a reopening.
Entry to the mine itself is $5 for automobiles, $25 for mini-tour buses and $50 for a bus.
PLEASE NOTE THE SITE MAY NOT BE OPEN IN 2013 DUE TO MOVEMENT AT THE ISTE PLEASE CHECK BEFORE VISITING.
