D Retort and Condensing System
The retort was most often used to process relatively small amounts of ore and to perform a second processing of calcines and dust from the rotary furnace.
This retort and condenser were used in the Guadalupe mine from 194-s until the mine closed in the 1970s. The Guadalupe Rubbish Company donated the D retort to NAQCPA in 1987.
