This mine does not have a name; therefore we named it after the Gatineau park trail #66, which leads to the mine. This mine was hard to find as it does not exist on any historical maps.
The mine is approx. 30 feet long by 6 feet wide by 10 feet high. The entire mine is now fenced in for health and safety reasons. Enjoy this lovely walk through the woods in any season.
We would like to thank Mary-Chantale for the following historical information:
The T66 mine was known as the Hull mica mine Eastern Operation, but it did not yield much other than a bit of phosphate and some phlogopite (amber mica). This plot was owned by none other than E.B Haycock, the same person who owned the Haycock mine as well as many others throughout Ontario and Quebec. The mine did not last too terribly long, as did most mines in the Gatineau hills at that time.
