The aftermath of the fire, Haileybury Road (now Lang Street), July 1909 - The Cobalt Adventure

The discovery of silver in northern Ontario lead to the birth of the town of Cobalt, probably one of Canada's last frontier towns. As adventurers and investors from the far reaches of the globe poured into the small town, issues of poverty, public health and labour unrest competed with the more glamorous stories of fabulous wealth. The explosive growth of Cobalt brought excitement, innovation, and a host of social problems to the otherwise conservative province of Ontario.

Crowdfunding campaign to fund Cobalt history book

A crowdfunding campaign has been launched to fund a new history book about the Town of Cobalt — and raise the community's profile in the process.

The most unique experience I did in my @NeOntario trip was a tour of the Colonial Mine Adit Underground Tour. Cobalt was a popular town due to the Silver Rush. It's my first time being in a real mine and believe me you don't want to be a miner during those time (or maybe even still today). - The Colonial Mine was in operation from 1907 until 1937 and produced 1.25 million ounces of silver. It's an Adit Mine because you enter the mine just by walking straight from the entrance.
