Gr8 Travel Tips Travel Photos – Mascot Mine Hedley BC
A presentation of our families personal photographs taken during our travel adventures around the world.
This time we head to the very small town of Hedley in the Province of British Columbia, Canada. This incredible historic site is situated five thousand feet above the town, and constructed completely on the side of a mountain face!
The Historic Mascot Mine In British Columbia
The Hedley Mascot Mine operated between 1936 and 1949, earning the reputation as one of the most unusual mining operations in the world. This successful mining operation yielded large amounts of gold, copper and silver up until 1955.
The town of Hedley (shown in photo) has been around since gold was discovered in 1898.
Today, after extensive restoration, the site is now a very popular tourist attraction. The view is simply amazing from the site on the mountain. Buses will take you up alongside the mountain, but be prepared to walk quiet a number of steep steps to the historic buildings.
Note December 2020 :
A search on Google shows the Hedley Mascot Gold Mine Tours recorded as closed at this time. I’ve included the official website link to the Mascot Mine, where you can access much more detailed information. The site has not been updated for quite some time now.
Safe and Healthy Travels! 🙂
