This pond forms every rainy season just west of the Oak Flat Withdrawal Area, a 760-acre parcel protected from mining by a 1955 land order. A controversial land-exchange bill would overturn that order and a proposed copper mine would result in subsidence, or collapse, of the surface of Oak Flat, including the area pictured in this 2013 photo. -- Credit: Anna Jeffrey -- ARM Story #21257 - resolution
