    Home :: Media Gallery :: Smelters
    Since the mid 1860’s many smelters have operated in Newcastle. The abundance of coal as a fuel, a ready workforce, a good supply of water, and harbour access for transport justified bringing ores to Newcastle, particularly copper, then silver, lead and zinc, followed by iron for making steel.
    Album: The Sulphide at Cockle Creek (20)
    The ‘Sulphide’ - Silver, Lead and Zinc smelting works opened in 1887 and closed in 2003.
