Mining History on the Baie Verte Peninsula

Creator(s): Baie Verte Peninsula Miners Museum

There's a rich mining history in Baie Verte, Newfoundland, that continues to the present day - and the Miners Museum in the community digs deep into its lore. Located at Terra Nova Mine, which operated from 1860 until 1864, and again between 1901 and 1915, the exhibit covers the range of minerals and rocks found in the Baie Verte Peninsula that made the mines a valuable going concern.
