During 1889 blast furnaces were erected at Tilt Cove to smelt the locally mined pyritic copper ore rather than ship to Swansea in Wales as had been past practice. Usually the slag was deposited on land as can be seen in the photos, but occasionally the mine manager ordered the material to be dumped in the sea. During the early 1890’s Swansea began smelting highly pyritic ores for their sulphur content making it more profitable once again to ship to Wales therefore the furnaces closed in 1894.
