Led by renowned local storyteller and historian, Gerry Stephenson, this mine tour highlights the story of mining in Canmore. In this program, the late Gerry Stephenson will lead you to the No. 1 and No. 2 Canmore Mines and the reclaimed strip mine, now a popular recreation spot Gerry was responsible for creating. Gerry worked as chief engineer and assistant general manager at the Canmore Mine from 1968 to 1974, having spent his life working in gold and coal mines. His tours of the Canmore Mine for the Canmore Museum attracted over 1,000 residents, students and visitors and were always sold out. This program is made possible with the financial support of the estate of Gerry Stephenson and his close friend Kay Anderson as a tribute to this remarkable individual.
