Ray was constructed in 1909 as a company town by the Arizona Hercules Copper Company. In the late 1940's open-pit mining replaced the underground workings. The growing pit eventually engulfed the town and Ray was moved to the town of Kearney in the late 50's.
A mine is a hole in the ground, owned by a liar.
