This is the lower area of the copper plant some of the foundations are made of masonry brick work. Their is also rusty pipes we discover protruding through the earth and we find a well. Next to the plant is massive tailings and possible remnants of an ore cart tram which would drop the ore down a chute in the mill for processing. Many other towns had massive mills like for example Thompson Smelter, Mason and Nordyke just to name a few. These mills processed copper as on both sides of the ranger it was discovered and very lucrative. I heard that the train would come right up along the mill so that the smelted copper could be exported. You can also see the lower area of the Witches Circle and even some ruins in blue painted on some foundations. Their is allot of foundations and much to see these plants were massive. A smoke stack not far from the mine blew down in a windstorm in the earlier 1900's. Today these ruins are extensive and worth exploring. Their are also hazards like rusty nails protruding through wood boards and sharp rebar so its very hazardous here. After the copper became exhausted gypsum mining became more mainstream in Ludwig.
