Arizona is a state in the southwestern region of the United States. It is also part of the Western and the Mountain states. It is the sixth largest and the 14th most populous of the 50 states. Its capital and largest city is Phoenix. Arizona shares the Four Corners region with Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico; its other neighboring states are Nevada and California to the west and the Mexican states of Sonora and Baja California to the south and southwest.


Arizona has 600 working mines and an estimated 120,000 abandoned mines. [1] As of 2013, the state had only 4 employees who actually inspected mines. Arizona is the only state with an elected mine inspector in the country. [2]

Some have questioned whether Arizona should continue to elect its mine inspector. [3] [4]
