The Box Mine

THE Box mine, situated in Saskatchewan on the north shore of lake Athabasca, is unique in two respects. It is the first and, so far, the only gold mine in Saskatchewan, and it is the only gold mine in Canada to employ a large-scale forced caving system as the main mining method. Discovered in 1934 byTom Box, an Edmonton prospector, its subsequent history, while breaking no records for speed, has been one of steady and more or less normal development.
