Elizabeth Mine Spoil Banks

Title:
Elizabeth Mine Spoil Banks
Town:
Strafford
County:
Orange
State:
Vermont
Date:
1966-10
Description:
This historic photograph documents a large spoil bank at the Elizabeth Mine in Strafford, Vermont. In the foreground are numerous spoil banks of sediment and mine tailings, that appear to have been deposited down the side of this shallow crescent shaped basin. In the basin, among the mine waste piles, a few shrubs and conifer tree species appear to slowly reforest this section of the slope; however on the hillside above the spoil banks, numerous conifer and deciduous tree species can be seen vegetating the forest. The difference in color between the mine waste piles and the sediment on the hillside, suggest that a road is located on top of the large pile of debris. Time and climate has caused very deep rills and gully erosion in the mine spoil bank deposits. Photograph by Collamer Abbott, season summer.
