"They's Gold in Them Thar Hills!"

The Arizona Republic reports today that gold mines are being reopened, or opened, across the state now that gold has hit almost $892 per ounce. Rising metal prices are luring both mining companies and weekend prospectors dreaming of discovering the Lost Dutchman or its siblings. It may be fun to weekend prospect, but it ain't easy money! Me, I say hire some diggers and bring a picnic lunch.
