Quirke Mine

This abandoned mine (also known as Quirke I) is located approximately 14 kilometres north of Elliot Lake.  

I worked here from 1984 to 1986 as a College / University student.  My father also worked here back in the 1950's and my brother in the late 1970's.

Today, there's only an open field with plenty of tall grass.  You can drive on this property and visually see the capped mine and ventilation shafts.
