dc.description.abstractIn 1945 a cable supporting a cage at the nearby Paymaster Mine broke, dropping the cage over 1,500 feet and killing 16 miners. The series of images on safety equipment at the Hollinger Mine was taken following that accident. 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.
