The Mascot Mine

Seven thousand feet above sea level and five thousand feet above the historic mining town of Hedley, British Columbia, stands one of the great mining wonders of the world - the Mascot Mine. Built on a narrow ridge with steep cliffs all around, mine workers lived and worked here - a definite cure-all for sleepwalkers.

At the kind invitation of the Upper Similkameen Indian Band, I was given permission to visit this site as it is under reconstruction in 2000 and captured the images below.
