Click on the pictures to see an enlarged view of the now long abandoned Lane City buildings, now private property belonging to BHP Copper mines.  Some of the extensive copper tailings that began in 1906 can be seen in the background of several of the photos.  The town of Ruth is behind the tailings. All photos below are Shaputis Photos 1999 and 2000
