1906: Shaft 130 feet deep, about 250 feet of lateral work at the 117 foot level. Production of 120,000 lbs of copper from 1500 tons of ore by Northern Ontario Consolidted Copper Co. Camp and mine buildings were erected during 1906-1907 but a forest fire in 1907 destroyed them all and due to a fall in the price of copper to 7 cents, the mine was never re-opened.
