About this image

"Old Blackie" was one of the last of the tramming mules at the Empire New Jersey Zinc Company's Hanover No. 8 mine at Hanover, NM.

A paper about the closure and reclamation of the Hanover-Empire zinc mine area is available on the NMGS website. The Chino (aka Santa Rita) mine is nearby.
