When I first saw Ogilvie’s from the ground, I promised myself to look back when i found my way into this little pitched outcropping which seemed to have the best view of Thunder Bay I could imagine. It turns out, though, that there is no floor in that section; it is just extended machine access! Oh well. Mount McKay in the background in the last light.

Call me angsty, but I like it. Found in the Auxiliary Hospital.
Heavy wood doors for keeping people in.
Miller Creek, in one of the wider sections that features a trout (as in the fish) canal in the middle of the drain. Even though it is underground, the fish are able to visit their breeding ponds upstream by swimming through the specially designed tunnel.
Some of the earlier buildings were dressed up with brick facades.
I included this image to illustrate the height of the headgrame and the distance between it and the hoist house. Of course, compared with the depth of the mine shaft, this distance is short.
Typical bunk rooms in MS-20.
The sign that greets visitors to the ghost town of Colmor. Nothing says ‘welcome’ like birdshot.
