Delaware Mill

“The Delaware Mine is the mine of a thousand faces, having a long and sordid history under the guise of several different names and owners. Over the years the mine has been under the corporate umbrella of several companies including the Pennsylvania, Conglomerate, Northwest, and Lac La Belle. With each new ownership change came a renewed investment in the mine’s surface plant, including the construction of no less then five separate stamp mills. Three of those mills were constructed along the shore of Lac La Belle, with two others having been built near the mine itself. One of those mills was believed to be the first steam-powered mills in the district, built along the banks of the Montreal River just south of the mine site.”
