Pearce-Sunsites – AKA Barren Land According to Commonwealth Silver of Canada

Pearce, Arizona

About us, our neighbors, families, and friends…

Sunsites is a town in southern Arizona which is located in the beautiful Sulphur Springs Valley at an elevation of about 4500 feet. The town lies 85 miles southeast of Tucson, and 30 miles southwest of Willcox. The area is known for its bird watching opportunities, and for its historic mining towns.

Sunsites, which was established in 1961, is a relative new town in the area. The town has a medical clinic, a library, a bank, churches, restaurants, gas stations, different stores, and an 18-hole golf course. Sunsites has become popular for people who prefer a quiet and relaxing living. Most of the residents are retired people, but the proximity to towns with a large number of employment opportunities makes Sunsites convenient also for working residents.

The area offers clean air, and a climate with more than 300 sunny days per year. Average daily high temperatures range from 60 °F in January to 90 °F in July. About 2 miles south of Sunsites, in the beginning of the famous Ghost Town Trail, lies the ghost town of Pearce, which is known for its gold production in the beginning of the 19th century. More than 15 million dollars in gold was produced by the Commonwealth Mine in Pearce. The historic Old Pearce General Store, and other old buildings and ruins from the late 18th and early 19th century, attracts many visitors who like to feel the atmosphere of old times.

Another attraction in the area is the Wonderland of Rocks which is a spectacular landscape with amazing rock formations in the Chiricahua National Monument to the east of the Sulphur Springs Valley. The monument is located at high elevations in the Chiricahua Mountains, and offers great opportunities for hiking among rock spires, birds, and other wildlife. To the west of the valley lies Cochise Stronghold which is a woodland area in the Dragoon Mountains. The area was once the home of the Apache Chief Cochise and his folks, and is now a part of Coronado National Forest. Cochise Stronghold offers many recreational activities such as hiking, camping, picnicking, rock climbing, and bird watching.

Within a few years, all of this will simply be a memory, after our water and environment is poisoned with cyanide by the Commonwealth Silver Corp. of Canada.

Thanks again for NOT being there for the “people” of Arizona John McCain and Jan Brewer. When our loved ones sicken and die from cyanide exposure, we will make sure your names are mentioned on their tombstones for letting it happen…
