Explore the old underground copper mine at Britannia Beach, near Vancouver BC Canada. Take a guided tour through the old tunnels, blasted out of solid rock and experience the working life of a hard rock miner. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia... Britannia Beach is a small unincorporated community in the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District located approximately 55 kilometers north of Vancouver, British Columbia on the Sea-to-Sky Highway on Howe Sound. It has a population of about 300. The community first developed between 1900 and 1904 as the residential area for the staff of the Britannia Mining and Smelting Company. The residential areas and the mining operation were physically interrelated, resulting in coincidental mining and community disasters through its history. Today, the town is host to the Britannia Mine Museum, formerly known as the British Columbia Museum of Mining, on the grounds of the old Britannia Mines. The mine's old concentrator facilities, used to separate copper ore from its containing rock, are a National Historic Site of Canada Copper mine (1900-1974) A copper discovery on Britannia Mountain by Dr. A. A. Forbes in 1888 led to the development of the Britannia Mine. In 1899, a mining engineer named George Robinson was able to convince financial backers that the property had great potential. For several years, companies were formed, merged and dissolved in efforts to raise capital. The Britannia Mining and Smelting Company, a branch of the Howe Sound Company, finally commenced mining in the early 1900s, and owned the site for the next sixty years. The first ore was shipped to the Crofton Smelter on Vancouver Island in 1904, and the mine achieved full production in 1905. A town had grown up around the mine and a Post Office opened on January 1, 1907 where it was named after the nearby mine. In 1912 John Wedderburn Dunbar Moodie was authorized to upgrade the operation and increase production from the mine. Improvements in the mineral separation processes stimulated plans for a new mill (No. 2), which was completed in 1916 and was capable of producing 2000 tons of ore per day. The onset of World War I increased the demand for copper and the price rose sharply. On March 21, 1915 an avalanche destroyed the Jane Camp. Sixty men, women and children were killed and it was a terrible blow to the tiny community. Construction began immediately on a new, safer town at the 2,200-foot (670 m) level above the Britannia Beach site. This portion of the community became known as the "Town site" or "Mount Sheer". In March 1921 during a brief period when the mine was shut down, mill No. 2 burnt to the ground. On October 28, 1921 after a full day of torrential rain, a massive flood destroyed much of that portion of the community and mine operations that existed on the lower beach area. 50 of 110 homes were destroyed and thirty-seven men, women and children lost their lives. The flood was caused because the mining company had dammed up a portion of the Creek during the construction of a railway, and when this dam gave way the town below was flooded. Carleton Perkins Browning directed the reconstruction of this portion of the community and the new No. 3 mill, which stands today. Being an isolated, close knit community which could only be accessed by boat, life in both of Britannia's towns was never dull. Facilities included libraries, club rooms, billiard rooms, swimming pools, tennis courts and even bowling. A thriving social calendar saw sporting events, theatrical productions, dances, movies and parties held throughout the year. The mine boomed in the late 1920s and early 1930s, becoming the largest producer of copper in the British Commonwealth by 1929, under the management of the mine manager C.P. Browning. In the 1940s there were talks to build an artist village in Britannia's hills, but that plan did not proceed. During the Great Depression, miners unionized in 1946 and suffered through their first strike. Low copper prices saw the Britannia Mine Company reduced to seven employees, and in 1959 it went into liquidation. In 1963 the Anaconda Mining Company bought the property and production continued for the next eleven years. 300 employees managed to produce 60,000 tons of concentrate each year. Ferries services stopped around May 1965 after the highway and railway connections had been constructed. The connections made it easier to transport the copper, but high operating costs and taxes eventually forced the mine to close on November 1, 1974. The company did not attempt to clean up the mine and chemical wastes that it produced, since environmental protection laws had not yet been enacted and enforcement of the Fisheries Act was never applied On April 1, 1975 the BC Museum of Mining was opened to the public, and was designated as a National Historic Site in 1988. The following year, 1989, the Museum site was designated a British Columbia Historic Landmark.

This documentary film from 1957 by Allan King for the CBC has been a favourite of Pembertonians for many years. The museum was able to convert an old copy of the film from VHS last year. For nearly half a century, Allan King has changed the way film and television show us the world. While considered to be one of the great documentarians, King is also renowned as a key pioneer of the Canadian feature film industry.

The first three minutes or so of the video consists of MEC 313 screwin' around with an ATSF covered hopper, eventually clearing up the tracks for EDPO, which steals the show for the rest of the video. The good news about this vid is that there's a lot of horn action. The bad news is there's a lot of e-bell.

04:52
Another Sunday Farmers' Market in White Rock The dull overcast is about to 'burn-off' like the fog in San Francisco at midday. There is always a sun behind the clouds. This Sunday the "Duolocity" with Ron Bull and Rick Gibbs are entertaining. This is the second year they are engaged by the Farmers' Market and they like it., To book this duo is easy. Just call Ron 604 531 9630 or Rick in Victoria 250 592 4341 It was great to listen to, as always. Duolocity play sax, guitar; the jazz duo is playing jazz standards and more and is available for gigs of all kinds. We need to mention the weather...White Rock is weather dependent...the year around warm climate and mild so called winters has made the community very much liked and is popular amongst sun-birds and other retired professionals. The two hours by car or bus to Whistler and area for skiing attracts both young and old. Boating year around is likewise an event undertaken by boat lovers renting their vessels at Crescent Beach marina or a stones throw across the Canadian/USA border in Blaine Wa. Swift crossing and passing of the border crossing point of Douglas Crossing or next to it , the Truck Crossing on 176th Street are convenient choices for tourists.

Village of Cumberland could expand by 2,000
 
03:01
CUMBERLAND - Village council granted final approval on Monday to Trilogy Properties for a 760-acre project being planned for the Cumberland interchange along the Inland Island Highway. The company has been working since 2004 on the project which could include nearly one million square feet of retail space and up to 2,000 residential units. The company's plans have met with resistance by some Cumberland residents but Mayor Fred Bates says he believes the project will mean a new beginning for the village. Bates said the village has been in the doldrums for 50 years since the closing of the area's coal mines and believes the project will help the municipality become more self-sufficient. The company and the village still have further work to do on approvals for the various parcels of land involved but company CEO John Evans says the first building on the property should be in place by March of 2011. That date is when the North Island Tourist industry's "Discover Centre" is to be completed by. Trilogy Properties donated land for the tourism/visitors centre earlier this year.
