Flambeau Mine Exposed

Welcome to the new website for historic and up-to-date information about the Flambeau Mine near Ladysmith, Wisconsin.

The Flambeau Mine (a Kennecott/Rio Tinto project) operated on the banks of the Flambeau River near Ladysmith, Wisconsin in the mid-1990s. This photo was taken in 1994 when the river flooded during heavy rains and came within 20 horizontal feet and 4 vertical feet of spilling into the mine pit.
