Moonta, within the Copper Triangle, is a small South Australian town steeped in copper mining history. There are many old buildings still standing that were used in the mining and smelting of ore in the 19th century. Huge slag heaps overlook the old mining shafts and the surrounding land poisoned by the mining process and the sulphuric acid poured into pools on top of the heaps to leach any remaining copper from the slag. These were the days before occupational health and safety for workers and environmental protection.
