"There was a relative lull in copper mining in Maryland in 1859, during which only the Sykesville mines seem to have had significant production. The Springfield mine was producing and the Mineral Hill mine was open if not producing. The Bare Hills mine and Maryland Copper Company reopened in 1860 after a period of idleness, but the owners spent the next few years in extensive development work, producing only enough ore to fulfill their expenses. The New London mine was briefly reopened and examined late in 1860 and was prepared for production, but it closed when the Civil War started in 1861. Isaac Tyson died in 1861. In 1864 the Mineral Hill property was transferred to the Mineral Hill Mining Company of Baltimore, which was managed by Tyson's sons, but after 1877 the company was able to continue operations intermittently only." The Liberty Mine was the largest copper producer in Maryland and the Mineral Hill mine was the second largest.
