This mural is dedicated to the Large Pine Creek Tungsten Mine and the Champion Sparkplug Mines. The Pine Creek mine is closed, but still exists. The gentleman in the circle image is a former miner who is now the caretake there and has worked at the mine for over 40 years. The Sparkplug mine once produced the raw material for ceramics used to make sparks plug insulators.
