Altura Gold Mines
Altura Gold Mines consisted of 15 mining claims in Fairlie Township, southwest of Slate Bay. Joseph McDonough’s Jomac Gold Syndicate staked the claims in the summer of 1936 and completed a small amount of exploration on the site. Altura Gold Mines incorporated in November 1936 to take over the property. In 1937,
the company sank an 85-metre (279 feet) shaft, cut two levels and carried out
125 metres (410 feet) of drifting and 450 metres (1,476 feet) of drilling. Work
ceased in November 1937 and there is no evidence that there has been any further
work on the property.
