Ross Mine

Category Exploration Date Status Province / State Country
Mining , Abandoned Ontario Canada

History: 

In operation between 1934 and 1988, Ross Mine produced over 1 million ounces of gold. It was owned, at closing, by Pamour Porcupine Mines, Ltd.

UPDATE July 5, 2012: Thanks to the heads-up from Jay's comment below, I discovered that the property is about to see action again. Guardians of Gold plan to reprocess the tailings behind the mine to remove trace amounts of gold.


Personal Commentary: 

As it stands today, it is almost exactly as it was the day it closed. The shaft is not capped, and all outbuildings remain pretty much pristine.
