Geographic Feature: McArthur Mine


(1893) Mr. Duncan McArthur supplied coal from this mine to a local market for a few years. In the 1930s it was re-opened before being permanently closed.


(1932 – 1943) The two most successful coal mines in Manitoba were located only a stone's throw away from one another.
(1883 – 1908 and 1931 – 1943) A series of coal mines opened and closed on the slopes of Turtle Mountain, at times providing an economic boost when the area needed it most.
