The Galt #8 Mine Historic Site Society has two projects under review, and is hoping to be able to complete them as soon as possible, providing that funding is available.
Galt #8 Mine Underground Workings Model
The first project involves the construction of a model of the underground workings at the Galt #8 Mine. Loosely based on the plans of the mine, it would provide an insight into the methods of work used and conditions endured by the Galt #8 miners.
Showing the underground passages, tracks, stables and coal production areas, it would be a similar scale to the existing Galt #8 Surface Model, and the two together would provide a valuable teaching tool for area schools and local museums.
If you have any photographs, plans or other details of the Galt #8 Mine, or if you, or someone you know has memories of what the workings looked like, why not help us out by letting us know about it?
