In this July 21, 2010 photo, geologist Pete Jones, who is in charge of cleaning up the Blue Ledge copper mine, stands at the entrance, or adit, to the main tunnel in the southern tip of the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest, south of Ruch, Ore. The Forest Service hopes to have the toxic tailings from the 110-year-old mine removed and buried by winter. (AP Photo/The Mail Tribune, Jim Craven)
