Mining Methods and Costs at the Eustis Mine

THE mines of the Consolidated Copper and Sulphur Company, consisting of the Eustis, the Albert, and the Capel mines, are situated in Ascot township, Quebec, about ten miles southeast of Sherbrooke, on the main line of the Quebec Central railway. Of these mines, only the Eustis is now producing, and it has been operated almost continuously for the past seventy years. Mining methods have been improved in recent years but are still old fashioned when compared with those employed in more modern and up-to-date mines.
