"I'm not sure what was mined in this town, but I suspect that it was probably asbestos. At the time I came upon this seemingly derelict structure some years ago, I didn't really care much about its function, just that it looked interesting and that it would probably make a good subject for a painting."
An iconic Canadian feature - a mine-head dramatically framed by a northern sky. By well-known Canadian artist - Michael Everett Glover.
