Starting in 1904 through the mid 1930’s, Cobalt’s mines and mills operated continuously. From then until 1989, operations were intermittent. Mining practices predating the 1930’s left significant pollution. Evident as; historic remnant mine workings, waste rock piles, and tailings ponds. Within the Cobalt mining camp, we must familiarize ourselves with the geomorphic setting to proper facilitate the rehabilitation of the tailings as well as the environment. Cobalt’s mining legacy has taught us how arsenic has poisoned the landscape, but what is there to learn from this, and how can we revitalize Ontario’s most historic City.
