Title:
The South Cut
Town:
Strafford
County:
Orange
State:
Vermont
Date:
2007-04
Description:
This photograph shows the south cut of the Elizabeth Mine system in Strafford. The cut is nearly 800 ft long and over 120 feet deep. The mine can be accessed from the bottom of the cut. A climber and spelunker stands near the edge looking in. Dense forestation lines the back of the cut. The foliage is multicolored of mid fall. There is little vegetation below the cut due to the intense toxicity of the soil from minerals extracted from the mine. The date of the original photograph says 1958, but most likely is about 10 years earlier. The mine shut down in 1958, and the photograph shows nowhere near the depth or length of the cut as it stands today. Much more earth has been removed from the cut between the time this photograph was taken and 1958. The surrounding vegetation and the tailings pile below the cut have changed little. The fence the runs along the edge of the cut in the original photograph has long since been removed or rotted away.
