Gold, Red Lake Mine, Balmertown, Ontario

This mine is currently one of the richest mines in the world. The mine was originally operated as the Arthur White Mine of Dickenson Mines Ltd., but after buying out Dickenson in the 1990's, Goldcorp Inc. discovered an incredible new orebody containing millions of ounces of gold. The Mine was re-named the Red Lake Mine. Goldcorp recently also purchased the Campbell Red Lake Mine and has merged the two mines together to form one large mine, one of the larger gold mines in the world, in terms of ounces of gold produced per year. See the article under "Articles" on this website for more information on the Red Lake Mine. Specimens like these are typical of the finest ore that came out of the "High-Grade Zone", the new orebody that transformed the old mine and that was largely responsible for financially bolstering Goldcorp Inc. to become the behemoth it is today. Here are some very nice specimens from the Red Lake Mine. Most of these specimens are from an old cache of specimens. Unique!
