|This is an image of safety equipment at the Hollinger Mine. In 1945 a cable supporting a cage at the nearby Paymaster Mine broke, causing the cage to drop 1,500 feet and killing 16 men. The Hollinger Mine is an underground gold mine in the Cochrane district, Ontario. The deposit was discovered in 1909 during the gold rush of Porcupine Camp and the Mine was operating by the early 1910s. The town of Timmins was established and named for the developer of the Hollinger Mine. The Mine was operated until 1968, then abandoned. Area properties including the Hollinger were acquired by Kinross Gold Corporation in 1999, which worked to mitigate significant subsidence through 2004 under the Abandoned Mines Rehabilitation Program.
