Mysterious Asarco Time Capsule To Be Opened Tonight

That’s correct, in 1975, Asarco buried a time capsule but the contents are unknown….what could it be?  Secret government documents…gold…old photographs?  I’m not sure but I plan on being at the El Paso Museum of History at 6 p.m. to find out and to also check out Carol Eastman’s opening exhibit that is a visual record of the Deconstruction of the Asarco Smelter.  The exhibit runs from February 17th to June 30th.  If you want to find out whats inside the capsule…then you need to stop by the El Paso Museum of History.

Could this be the time capsule from Asarco?

My name is David and I am living El Paso.

    The Asarco smelter may be “deconstructed” but the poisons from 1991 to 1998 when the Federal DOJ and EPA said Asarco ran a multi-state illegal secret hazardous-waste incineration operation — those poisons are still there.

    I hope that the opening of the Time capsule reminds us of how long Smeltertown has been demolished — and how long since then that the IBWC office by Asarco/smeltertown has remained open despite that. The workers at IBWC’s dam are sick according to the Federal State Department – and, the silence regarding their illnesses is over 30 years old….
