Initially started as a Uranium Mine in 1949 until 1951.  Upon closure, the Ranwick went on to become a tourist attraction at Montreal River where guests could tour the underground mine adit in the 1960's and 1970's.  Here's a photo of the adit entry. 

The adit is driven in 1050 feet, with 7 cross cuts along the way, 2 of which are approximately 10' deep.
