FSX – San Manuel Mine And Smelter, This scenery is a total rebuild of my original fsx_san_Manuel.zip scenery. I custom built all of the main structures at the mine so that it looks close to what the real mine looked like in the 70s and into the early 80s. This mine was opened in the early 1950s and sets on the largest copper ore body in the Northwest Hemispere.The mine closed in the late 80s or early 90s and all structures have been removed and the smelter was torn down as well. This may be the only representation of what the mine looked like other than photographs.My rendering of the mine is not exact but come close.The rendering of the smelter is not a true representation at all but looks better than the default scenery.
