Mining in Temagami
A History of Discovery, Development and Production
by Dustin Roy

This book collects and records the information of past mining activities throughout the Municipality of Temagami in Northeastern Ontario, Canada. He has done a tremendous amount of research on the camp's mining history and has visited many of the abandoned mine sites described in this book. Out of the 38 mine sites described in this book, 36 of them were derived from the Abandoned Mines Information System. This is an online database provided by the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines that documents over 5,000 abandoned and inactive mine sites in Ontario.

Dustin Roy is a historian who grew up and resides in the historic Temagami Mining Camp, one of the most prolific mining regions in North America. He hopes to spread his knowledge about the Temagami Mining Camp and to re-ignite interest in the area that may have been forgotten over the generations.
