Craigmont Story

The Craigmont Story describes the life and history of a mid-twentieth century copper mine and its contribution to Merritt, the Nicola Valley and British Columbia. It is a story of the formation of the orebody beneath the earth's surface, and the eventual discovery of its mining potential - concluding with an explanation of how the land is returned and restored to cattle range, More important, this is the story of the people who were part of Craigmont from its inception and one man's dream through its hesitant beginnings and final success. The Craigmont mine was in operation for twenty years and met with continued success through periods of poor copper markets, labor unrest, government policy changes and unprecedented inflation, success that can be measured in terms of the copper produced and profits made.
