I heard from a Beatty resident there's a rumor that Keane may be reopened sometime in the foreseeable future. I haven't found any confirmation of this. But has anyone else heard anything?

I've heard this from rangers various times. It was in the works until Scotty's Castle was damaged, which set all park projects back several years.

I spoke to someone in the NPS last October (who I am not going to name because I don't know if they were supposed to give me this information yet).

But, they are hoping to re-open Keane soon.

The issues were

1. Open mine shafts (fixed).
2. Securing the tram (fixed).
3. Cyanide/lead.

The cyanide and lead are abated enough that people can remain at the site for 6-8 hours at a time without being endangered. However, they were having a hard time convincing the higher-ups in DC of this.

This pretty much matches what I was told by the Beatty resident.
