Notes: Mining history. After milling (smashing the ore into smaller pieces), smelting is the way to recover gold, silver, copper, lead, and other minerals. From several hundred small smelters to the consolidations and mergers that lead (no pun intended) to ASARCO, the American Smelting and Refining Company. Vertical integration, European technology, Eastern capital–it’s the All-American story.
