Then and now photos of the former Northern Empire Gold mine and railway line northeast of the community of Beardmore, ON. The first was taken in the 1930s when the mine went into operation looking east along the grade. The mine produced nearly 150,000 ounces of gold from 1934 to 1941.


The second photo was taken in May 2021 looking west at the remains of the concrete foundations. The mine was located at Milepost 19.8 of the then Canadian National Railways Dorion Subdivision (MP 69.5 of the later CN Kinghorn Subdivision).
