Overview

Discover how the effects of strikes, war, untimely death, and other ill-fortune contributed to the collapse of this ambitious Canadian owned and operated mining venture. Interpretive panels, listening posts, and walking paths through the ruins create a window back in time to the early 1900s. Leitch Collieries was one of the most impressive and sophisticated early coal mines in the Crowsnest Pass. It was the only fully Canadian-owned and operated coal mine in the pass, and features ruins of a coal processing plant, weigh scale, coke ovens and more. Open Spring through Fall with Interpreters on site from May 15 - Labour Day.
