Milliken Mine (Elliot Lake)

1956 - 1964

2 Headframes - 168 metres apart

For years, this abandoned mine sat empty and was often the playground for teenagers from Elliot Lake who would ride their bikes to the minesite via Milliken Mine road, crawl through a hole in the fence to venture into the mill and office buildings.

All buildings including the headframes have since been dismantled.  Shafts have been capped as well.   On my last visit to this property a few years back, one of the shaft pipes was howling with air coming out.  Obviously some air coming into the shaft from elsewhere.
