Day 7 - Chillagoe Smelters

So the famous Chillagoe Smelters, which closed in 1943 but in it's time treated...1.25 million tonnes of ore, 60 000 of copper, 50 000 of lead, 181 of silver and 5 tonnes of gold. Although all the building and machinery were auctioned and removed, the debris left makes for cool photos!

even more smelters
