Mining began circa 600AD by native Americans for turquoise. Underground mining began in the 1860's with open pit operations starting in 1968.

Porphyry copper deposits are low-grade (<0.8%) disseminated deposits of copper found in and around small intrusive bodies composed of porhyritic diorite, granodiorite, monzonite or quartz monzonite. Primary chalcopyrite is non-economic and required supergene enrichment to chalcocite and covellite to form economic deposits.

An open pit mine in a porphyry copper deposit. Located just SW of Silver City, NM. Mined from the Main, San Salvador, Gettysburg and Copper Mountain pits. Owned by Phelps Dodge Corp. & Burro Chief Copper Co. (1985).
This mine has removed several other old underground mines in the area and covered others with the dumps.

The Open Pits at the Tyrone Mine Facility include the Main, West Main, Valencia, Gettysburg, Copper Mountain, South Rim, Savanna and San Salvador Hill pits.
Previously mined and now partially or completely backfilled pits include the San Salvador Hill, Virginia Racket, West Racket, East Main, Gettysburg Entry, BA-O, and Upper Main. Of the existing open pits at the mine, the Main, West Main, Valencia, Savanna, and Gettysburg Pits are contiguous.
