It was the early 20s and the Ontario Gold Rush was in full swing. It seemed everybody was moving to Kirkland Lake. The community boasted a main street lined by no less than seven gold mines… the world famous Mile of Gold.
While the times when mine whistles blew day and night are long gone, the hardiness and resourcefulness they demanded of its people are not. The ingenuity of our founders is booming today with hard won experience for the benefit of mineral processors worldwide.
