Anselmo Copper Mine (United States)

The Anselmo Mine is the best preserved of all the mine yards in Butte. Owned by Butte-Silver Bow County, it has been maintained in almost the same condition it was in when it shut down in 1959, after operating since 1887.
The Anselmo shaft is 4301 feet deep — quite respectable, but nearly 1000 feet shallower than Butte's deepest mine. It began as a zinc mine, with copper coming to the fore later.
