Description From Owner:
  • Pop. 581. In Plummer Additional T., Algoma Dist. on the N shore of L. Huron's North Ch. opposite St. Joseph I., on Hwys 17 & 638, 62 km SE of Sault Ste. Marie.
  • In 1846 the first mining claim was filed by James Cuthbertson. The following year the Montreal Mining Company started the first copper mine in Canada, shipping ore to Wales for smelting.
  • Cornishmen, brought from England to work the mines, were known as 'Cousin Jacks,' and their wives as 'Cousin Jennies.'
  • The mines were the mostproductive on the continent until American demand for copper ceased during the Civil War, forcing their closure in 1876.
  • The town was named in honour of James Bruce, 8th Earl of Elgin and governor of the province of Canada 1846-1854.
