The Britannia Copper Mine

The mine was worked for just over a century albeit intermittently and at times not very successfully. Although known mainly as the Britannia Copper Mine, or sometimes Great Snowdon Copper Mine, the Britannia company only owned it from 1898. It was sold to the Penypass Copper Co in 1915 - and then it closed the year later in 1916. In all seven companies tried their luck over 100 years.[1]
