About this title


Between 1870 and 1884 over three million dollars in silver was mined from a skull-shaped island rock, a small outcropping in Lake Superior known as Silver Islet.

The account of one of Ontario's earliest mines, and the world's leading silver producer in its day, rates as one of the most gripping stories ever associated with mineral exploration. The story is one of incredible human courage, tenacity and mining know-how.

Silver Islet: Striking It Rich in Lake Superior chronicles in text, archival photographs and maps the glory days of the Silver Islet mine where brass bands once played in the wilderness.
