Sewell Camp


Sewell Camp is an old mining camp located 64 km from Rancagua, in the middle of the Andean mountain range.  This is the place where copper miners that worked at the El Teniente Copper Mine lived.  It was built in the beginning of the 20th c. by a North American company named Bradden Copper.  The camp is now owned by Codelco, Chile’s national copper company, and bears witness to the country’s copper boom during the 1960’s.  More information is available at the website
