Take a tour of the world’s largest smelting plant
90 km south of Port Augusta. This is the port and smelting centre for the Broken Hill mining district. It looks just as you would expect a busy lead and zinc smelting centre to look, complete with active chimneys; and it has looked much like this for well over 100 years. Bravely, they maintain a visitor information center Mary Elie Street. Here you can sign up for a tour of the world’s largest smelting plant, Pasminco Smieter.
