Lawson Mine No. 8 Shaft
Cobalt, Ontario
Silver Mine, 1906-1920 (re-opened for a time in the 1950’s)
The Lawson Mine was built on the site of the famed “Silver Sidewalk”, a rich surface vein of silver that was smooth enough to walk upon. The original silver sidewalk vein is purported to have run at a spectacular 20,000 ounces of silver to the ton. The Lawson Mine reached a depth of 410 feet.
