ANACONDA, established in 1896, was a MINING townsite in the BOUNDARY DISTRICT south of GREENWOOD, 20 km east of GRAND FORKS. The BC Copper Co operated a SMELTER here from 1901 to 1918 for ore from its DEADWOOD and Mother Lode mines. The site was named after the Anaconda Smelter in Bute, MT. See also COPPER.
