Heritage Silver Trail
Site 12: Nipissing 73 - Meyer Shaft

This shaft operated from 1907 to 1932 as part of the Nipissing Mining Company operations. Most of the ore mined here was considered low-grade and was transported to Nipissing's low-grade mill (Site #7) by way of an aerial tramway.

Approximately 13,000,000 ounces of silver was recovered from this property.
