When I revisited the mine in 2013, the hoists were scrapped and sitting by the road.
“It must have been beautiful once.” “Yeah, especially in the winter.”
The largest extant structure when I visited.
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.
This building was an office and lounge for engineers. It is also demolished.
…a better view of the huge tailings boom stretching outside of the tailings pond.
Standing on a caustic tank with my head out a roof hatch, I look at the sign of the last brand to be produced here.
A window for light and air pokes above the big arch in the hallway. Most of the interior ceilings were broad brick archways.
Taken on a short trip where the whole floor of the roundhouse and engine shop was covered in fresh snow–thanks to the holes in the roof and open windows.
