Vein discovered in 1916. Mined from open cuts, adits and 22.8 m. shaft. Stephen Wellington operated the mine between 1918 and 1920, Canada Fluorspar operated in 1928, and C.A. Stoklosar between 1941 and 1947. Total production 5,026 tons of ore. On December 23, 1999 the main open stope was blasted and closed off. The surface was leveled, leaving only two open cuts, #2 and #3, in the side of the ridge to the north near Moira Lake. Shaft #3 was filled in January of 2000.
