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.
