Information

Prince Alfred Mine Site, abandoned copper mine.
The copper mine was discovered in 1866 and abandoned in 1907. During this time, 3 different companies worked the mine, with 12,000 tons produced in its final 17 years. Many of the nearby drought stricken farmers at Belton found employment at the mine. The mine was temporarily revived in the late 1960s by a small group of men but production did not last long enough to support ongoing operations.
If you visit today, you will see many interesting dwellings with stone arches, the main building and tall chimney and some just foundations. Whilst in ruins, the quality of the buildings can be seen.
