Formerly: Beaver mine, Thetford Mines, Mégantic Co., Québec, Canada
An abandoned asbestos mine in ultrabasic, serpentinized rock.
Coordinates extrapolated from topographic map are for Beaver-1 mine (Jacob mine)
The mines in the area have very confusing nomenclature because often smaller mines were incorporated in larger ones, and multiple open pits became one large open pit, sometimes under a new or modified name. Furthermore people sometimes incorrectly referred to mine by the name of the owner and operator.
Here, the Beaver-1 (aka Jacob), Beaver-2 & King mines were consolidated under the King Beaver name.
