This is the MacDonald feldspar mine, which was opened in 1919 and worked intermittently until 1935. This mine was the largest producer of feldspar in the Bancroft district, and for a period of time the largest producer in Canada; with total production just under 32,000 tons of feldspar. The mine was explored in the mid-fifties for radioactive minerals, but has since remained quiet, though rock-hounds regularly visit. It's an interesting area, and a short drive from Bancroft.
