“Great slice of the past.”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Well worth the trip down the mine. They are so nice and will always try to lay on an English speaking guide. Some are actually scheduled I believe. But as in everything else about the Abitibi region. the people go out of their way to make you feel at home.
The miners house/museum on the street leading up to the mine is well worth seeing. These people were heroic to live as simply and in such small spaces as they did.
