Brown Bag Lunch about the Copper Connections between Chile and Butte

Wednesday, July 25, 2018

The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series on Wednesday, July 25, with a presentation by Max Counter and Joe Bryan titled, “Copper Connections: Butte, Chile, and the Anaconda Copper Company. The two will present photos comparing Butte and Chuqicamata, cities dominated by copper mining and the ACM. This presentation offers a photographic-based glimpse into the distant, yet intricately connected, copper towns of Butte and Chuqicamata, Chile, highlighting the contrasts and parallels between these two towns that exist on the edge of the Anaconda's transcontinental copper pits. Max Counter is a PhD Candidate in Geography at the University of Colorado, Boulder. He was born and raised in Butte, Montana, and his research focuses on post-conflict land rights in Colombia. Joe Bryan is Associate Professor of Geography at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Born and raised in Helena, Montana, he has conducted research on indigenous rights in the Americas.
