Elverdton-Mt Desmond Copper Mines, Ravensthorpe Shire, Western Australia, Australia
Surface mining started here around 1900. The Elverdton Mine was operating between 1956-1972. A small potash operation for farm fertilizer continues, but beyond this mining ceased in 1972. There is much rubbish around the mine, and the mullock heap is busily eroding into a nearby stream. Azurite and malachite is common in the Mt Desmond section, while malachite only is common in the Elverdton section.
