Rossiter's Point Pumping Station, Moonta Bay

Yorke Peninsula

Free
The Rossiter's Point Pumping Station was erected in 1901 and was used to pump sea water to Ryans' Engine house at Moonta Mines, more than three kilometres away, for use in the cementation process when treating the tailings dumps for the copper mining. Low tide is the best time to explore to see what remains.
