Title: Buildings at Copperhill in Polk County, Tennessee
Photographer : unknown
Date Created: 1970
Abstract: 2 tifs. Images of buildings near the mines in Copperhill, Tennessee in 1970. The first image is of a partially brick, partially aluminum clad home on a barren site. The second image is of a concrete block industrial structure with machinery behind it and dumpsters in the foreground. The devastation of the Copper Basin was so great that the area was once considered the largest man-made biological desert in the nation, with over 50 miles stripped. In the 1870s the mines began to fail due to a lack of transportation and a decline in the quality of ore. However, improvements in transportation over the next twenty years led to rapid growth in the area. Eventually the area's industry shifted to sulfuric acid, which was used to smelt copper. In 1941 the Tennessee Valley Authority began an effort on site to re-vegetate the basin, including the construction of sixteen buildings. The area was mined until 1987.

Title: Copperhill smelting plant
Photographer : unknown
Date Created: 1970
Abstract: 2 tifs. Two images of the blackened ground and gaseous vapors of the smelting mines at Copperhill, Tennessee. Both images depict the refinery in the backrground, and the second image shows the raw steel and materials used in the mines. In the 1870s the mines at Copper Basin began to fail due to a lack of transportation and a decline in the quality of ore. However, improvements in transportation over the next twenty years led to rapid growth in the area. Eventually the area's industry shifted to sulfuric acid, which was used to smelt copper. In 1904 the pyritic process for copper smelting was invented, which eliminated the need to open roast the ore. In 1961 the Copper Basin aded a fluid-solids roaster to reduce pollution and in 1992 a new sulfur burner was installed to replace the smelter. Acid production at Copperhill ended in 2000.
