Description From Owner:

  • Pop. 103. In Nicol T., Timiskaming Dist. on the E side of Gowganda L. and on Hwy 560, 87 km. W of New Liskeard. The place was known to lumbermen, but discovery of a major silver deposit put it on the map in 1907.
  • Within three years seven mines were in operation and the population had reached 5,000.
  • A fire destroyed most of the community in 1911 and many residents also left for a gold boom in Kirkland Lake. The last mine closed in 1972. The name derives from a First Nations Peoples word for 'place of the porcupine.'
