The Abandoned Kennecott Mines - Alaska

Kennecott, also known as Kennecott Mines or AHRS Site No. XMC-001, is an abandoned mining camp in the Valdez-Cordova Census Area in the U.S. state of Alaska that was the center of activity for several copper mines. It is located beside the Kennicott Glacier, northeast of Valdez, inside Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve. The camp and mines are now a National Historic Landmark District administered by the National Park Service.
It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1986.

History

Kennecott, Alaska In the summer of 1900, two prospectors in Alaska spotted a green patch of hillside that looked like it would be good grazing land for their horses. The green turned out to be on top of a mountain of copper ore. They, together with several friends, formed the Chitina Mining and Exploration Company.
