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.
