Copper Mining in New England

New England has never been a major mining region, but in America's early days small mines and quarries often successfully supplied local needs for many years, and at the same time generated considerable wealth in local areas.

Historic descriptions of New England copper deposits and copper mines may be found in the following entries from Hayward's New England Gazetteer of 1839:


New Hampshire Copper Mines


Vermont Copper Mines


Massachusetts Copper Mines
