Murray Mine, Sudbury

In 1883, Thomas Flanagan, a blacksmith for the Canadian Pacific Railway, noticed a rust colored patch of rock while working in a recently blasted area. The land around the area was patented a year later to James Loghrin, Henry Abbott, and Thomas and William Murray, whom the mine is named after. It was worked in periods of 1 to 5 years from 1889 to 1925, when it was purchased by INCO. Starting in 1950, ore was continually produced until it's closure in 1971.

The mine had a total of 2 shafts, with shaft 1 tunneled 1075 feet down. There is also a large open pit, which has filled up with water due to neglect. When I went to visit, I only had time to visit the old Ore Processing building, but there is much more there.
