Abandoned Gold Mine in Ontario
You might imagine that I have lost interest in the mineral world, but it is not the case – work just becomes all-consuming some times and I need to set my personal life aside, but summer holidays are here again and its time to re-establish interest.
This past week took me north of the “Soo”, Sault Ste. Marie for those who are not familiar with the expression “Soo”. Up there, past Batchewana Bay, the shield is absolutely ancient, high hills, possibly more rugged than down around Bancroft, but no less dotted with old abandoned mines and rock hounding sites. Sadly, there is little in the way of karst as I am used to seeing it – so no caves, or none that I saw.
This picture is of an deserted house at an abandoned gold mine that I explored (more to come on that).
