Copper mine


Barraga was not always small. Like most of these towns it had a past, in this case a copper mine in the early 1900s.  Just a big pipe from a substantial operation remains.

  1. That is so cool that there is still something standing to show the mine was there. Nice photo.

  4. I've been told that this was a pretty productive mine - until they ran out of ore.

  5. Great range of colours in the vegetation, and a chimney to focus on.

  6. They knew eventually you would turn up, JE. Magnificent.

  7. I was fortunate that it was late in the day so I caught the afternoon light on the chimney which was quite a distance away from my vantage point.
