Bruce Mines: A History of Copper

Creator(s): Bruce Mines and Plummer Additional Union Public Library

Bruce Mines is a community in northern Ontario that originated as a direct result of copper mining in the mid 1800s. Named after the 1847 Governor General of Canada, James Bruce, the town is located on the north shore of Lake Huron. Today, copper mining in Bruce Mines is non-existent, however, we remember our unique history with this exhibit.
