History / Biographical
This was the first commercial coal mine in what would become Alberta, opened by Nicholas Sheran in 1874. The mine was known by a variety of names in the 65 years of its operation: Sheran, Federal, Pioneer, Ashcroft, Grace, Donaldson, Cadillac / Donaldson, Hamilton, and Lethbridge Collieries. The most popular name was, however, the Federal Mine. Coal production from this mine totalled 481,975 metric tonnes from 1902 to 1941. Production figures were not recorded prior to 1902. Over the years the mine was operated by 19 owners or lesees. It was formally abandoned on 15 September 1941. Source: Johnston, Alex et al. Lethbridge: Its Coal Industry.

History / Biographical
The New Barnes Coal Company opened this mine in 1909, and by July that year the mine was producing coal. The company abondoned the mine in the spring of 1925, but it was re-opened in November 1929 by Albert Edward Dupen and Son. From then until the mine was formally abondoned on 29 December 1942, Albert Dupen and his son Harold operated the mine with a succession of different business partners: James Wilkie, Steve Susnar, Otto Krossna, Mike Miskulan and Alex Koshman. On 2 November 1929 Albert Dupen informed the mines inspectors that he and his son intended to re-open the New Barnes Mine by means of a new entry to the old workings, which they did. Total production from the New Barnes Mine was 51,023 metric tonnes of coal. Source: Johnston, Alex et al. Lethbridge: Its Coal Industry. Lethbridge Historical Society, 1989

History / Biographical
The Kerralta Mine was opened by Lethbridge jeweller James Gladstone "Jimmie" Kerr, who received help from the federal Emergency Coal Production Board. The Emergency Coal Board, as it was known locally, provided a variety of assistance to the coal industry with the goal of boosting production during World War 2. The mine was briefly shut down by inspectors in July 1942, when high concentrations of gas were detected. On 9 August 1943 a gas explosion in the Kerralta Mine claimed the lives of four men: Samuel Crabb, William King, John Pente and John Zubray. The mine effectively ceased production after the accident, although a Mr. Hagblad attempted to re-open it as the New Royal View Mine from January to March 1944. The mine was formally abandoned on 9 March 1944. Source: Johnston, Alex et al. Lethbridge: Its Coal Industry. Lethbridge Historical Society, 1989

Mine No. 761 was known by several names: Crawford, Hamilton Mine No. 1, Southern Alberta Coal Mine, and Southern Alberta Mine No. 1. During its operation, the mine produced a total of 9,897 metric tonnes of coal. The mine opened by John K. Hamilton in July 1918. The mine was leased to Robert Crawford, Fred James and Earl Spencer on 1 November 1920. In the folowing years, Robert Crawford maintained an interest in the mine through several company name changes and a succession of business partners. The mine was idle from 1928 until Crawford re-opened it on 27 October 1931. It was formally abandoned on 26 March 1941. Mine No. 836 was known as the Keystone Mine, and during its brief existence produced 2,550 metric tonnes of coal. The first owner of record was Eliza Harrison in 1919. The mine was leased to Thomas Whitelaw from 1919 to 1920, and Keystone Collieries Limited from 1920 to 1923. Abandoned in March 1923, by November the Keystone Mine was consolidated with Mine No. 761.

History / Biographical
This mine, known as the Hamilton Mine and the Royal View Coal Mine, produced 140,358 metric tonnes of coal during its years of operation. The mine was opened by George Hamilton on 5 November 1923, and only operated until February 1924, when it was closed. Sold to Bill Koskewich and Steve Pashkiwski, the mine re-opened on 9 September 1924. From that time on, the mine had new owners and operators every two to four years on average. A new shaft was sunk in 1932, and by June 1933 pillars of coal had been drawn from the old workings. In 1936 a fire destroyed the mine's power plant and did considerable other damage as well. On 17 October 1942, water broke through the roof of one of the rooms, and flooded part of the mine. The owners built timber and rock fill dams to contain the flooding, but were not successful. The mine was formally abnadoned on 12 November 1942. Source: Johnston, Alex et al. Lethbridge: Its Coal Industry. Lethbridge Historical Society, 1989

History / Biographical
This mine was known by a variety of names during its existence: Bateman Mine, Lethbridge Gem Mine, Co-operative Mine, Social Credit Mine, and the New Royal View Mine. It produced a total of 62,707 metric tonnes of coal. The mine was opened by James Bateman in November 1925, but he abandoned it on 26 February 1926. The mine was idle until November 1936, when it was re-opened by the Lethbridge Social Credit Co-operative Miners' Association Limited. This was an organization of unemployed coal miners who received assistance from the Social Credit government of Alberta in the form of $10,000 and a promise that the miners would continue to receive relief until the mine began to turn a profit. Shares at $10.00 each were sold to investors, but never returned a dividend. In 1937 the miners changed the name of their organization, dropping 'Social Credit' in the face of political opposition. In 1942, with War War 2 in its third year and the need for employment projects gone, the Lethbridge Co-operative Miners' Association Limited disappeared and other owners took over the mine. The mine continued to operate until 1946, when it was formally abandoned. Source: Johnston, Alex et al. Lethbridge: Its Coal Industry. Occasional Paper No. 20. Lethbridge Historical Society, 1989

History / Biographical
This mine was the second of two that shared registration number 871. Formerly known as the Hamilton Mine and Riverside Mine, John Rollingson bought the coal leases in July 1929. In 1933 Rollingson opened a new entry at the location shown on this map. Poor surveying techniques meant that Rollingson inadvertently encroached on coal controlled by the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR). John Rollingson was able to lease the rights to mine the CPR coal and operated his mine until 20 December 1940, when he formally abandoned it. Source: Johnston, Alex et al.
