Britannia Mine Museum Connected by Copper

Comments 57 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Britannia Mine Museum is introducing a new summer exhibit, Connected by Copper: From Cells to Cell Phones, on now until September 7, 2021 at the Museum’s Machine Shop. The exhibit explores how copper has been entwined in our lives and delves into the unique uses of the metal since ancient times. It also extends from last year’s Bug Buster exhibit showcasing the protective properties of copper that helps protect us from harm.

Connected by Copper: From Cells to Cell Phones exhibit features a variety of displays including a floor-to-ceiling 3D DNA structure that showcases how copper is used in products to protect us from harm, as well as an electric light selfie photo station, demonstrating how copper lights up our world.

A bonus feature of this year’s exhibit is a digital display showcasing how TransLink has used copper to help kill bacteria on buses and SkyTrain cars.

At the same time, the Museum’s Terralab STEAM learning education space will also run The Chemistry of Cleanup sessions at 2:00pm Fridays to Mondays, showing visitors a replicated process of the EPCOR Britannia Mine Water Treatment Plant. The water treatment plant is part of the Museum’s environmental remediation, using natural materials to filter minerals in the water, due to the naturally occurring acid rock drainage when minerals in exposed rocks react with oxygen and rainwater. The treatment plant then neutralizes surface water runoff collected from the area, resulting in clean water flowing into Howe Sound.

Britannia Mine Museum

The Britannia Mine Museum is open to the public seven days a week with appropriate COVID-19 safety measures and procedures in place. Purchase tickets in advance and plan your visit here. The Museum is located right off the Sea to Sky Highway at 1 Forbes Way, Britannia Beach just before you get to Squamish. Follow along on Facebook and Twitter for the latest exhibit updates.
