Historical Canadian Mines Data Hub and Visualization Centre

The Historical Canadian Mines Data Hub and Visualization Centre (“The Hub”) is a platform for accessing, storing, visualizing, and continued collection of information on mines in Canada throughout history and up to the present day. The Hub provides access to data on location information, as well as operational and production details, of mines that operated within Canada as long ago as 1774. Using the map tabs and filter settings, users can visualize trends in mining operations across the country over time, or view details on specific mines of interest.

 

 

This presentation reflects on our Canadian Mining history by using mapping and data visualization of a historical mining database that was funded through the support of the CIM Underground Mining Society, the University of Saskatchewan (USask) College of Engineering, and the Canadian Hub for Applied and Social Research (CHASR) at USask.
