Description:

Scarce colonial engraved views of the British and Tasmanian Charcoal Iron Company , an iron mining and smelting company that operated from 1874 to 1878 in Northern Tasmania. It was formed by floating the operations of a private company, the Tasmanian Charcoal Iron Company that operated between 1871 and 1874. This venture was the largest of the four that smelted iron from local iron ore in Tasmania during the 1870s. The company’s operations included an iron ore mine near Anderson’s Creek and a railway from the mine to its blast furnace and port near Redbill Point on the West Arm of the Tamar River estuary in Northern Tasmania. Its blast furnace—the largest and most modern in Australia for its time, produced pig-iron June 1876 to August 1877.
