Old Shakesphere gold mine in Webbwood. At one time this was the richest gold field in Ontario. Gold was discovered in 1903 and Mining operations opened up in about. 1905. All that's here is some tailings, what's left of the two shafts and a cement platform. As well as an airhole into the mine, and a few pieces of stairs down the mountain.
