Kennecott Flambeau Mine Process Documents – Ladysmith, Wisconsin

The Kennecott Flambeau Mine process documents provide researchers access to the documents that relate to the permit process for the mine. Approximately 25 documents describe the mine and its natural and cultural environments. The documents contain numerous color maps, illustrations and approx. 130 drawings from a series of original blueprints.

All the materials in this collection were made available to the citizens of Wisconsin at the Ladysmith Public Library during the life of the mine. They were donated to the Kurt F. Wendt Library, University of Wisconsin-Madison after the mine closed. Wendt Library holds the print copies. 

The 181-acre mining site located about one mile south of Ladysmith, Wisconsin, is bounded on the east by State Highway 27 and on the west by the Flambeau River.

Over the course of the mining operation, about 1.9 million tons of ore containing about 8.9% copper and 0.10 ounces of gold per ton were mined and shipped from the site. The mine produced about 178,000 tons of marketable copper and 328,000 ounces of gold.

Hunting Trips of a Ranchman by Theodore Roosevelt

Theodore Roosevelt was this nation’s 26th President and is considered by many to be our “Conservationist President”.

“When he became President in 1901, Roosevelt pursued this interest in natural history by establishing the first 51 Bird Reserves, 4 Game Preserves, and 150 National Forests. He also established the U.S. Forest Service, signed into law the creation of 5 National Parks, and signed the 1906 Antiquities Act under which he proclaimed 18 national monuments. The area of the United States placed under public protection by Theodore Roosevelt totals approximately 230,000,000 acres.”
