Description
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.
