Mining

Tyranite Mine

History: 

This mine has apparently had several incarnations over time. The ore body was first staked in 1930 by L.O. Hedlund. Several organizations obtained options to the property over the next few years, but did little with it, and let their options lapse.

Cobalt Silver Mines

History: 

Cobalt is a town founded on silver mining. In 1903, while constructing the railway, silver was discovered, and a town was born. 400 mines later, there isn't much happening in Cobalt today, but there's LOTS to explore.

Personal Commentary: 

Kanichee Mine

History: 

Exploratory mining on this property began before 1920. Among the minerals found here was copper, nickel, gold and silver. Between 1933 and 1936, a shaft would be sunk, and a pilot smelter constructed by Cuniptau Mines Ltd.
