"One hundred years ago, when the first trans- continental train reached Winnipeg, there were 4 brick yards, a building stone quarry, and a salt works in southern Manitoba. Gypsum was being developed in the Interlake area and coal had just been discovered at Turtle Mountain.

Over the last century, our mining industry past and
present has come a long way, leading railways,
roads, and airports into the great northern reaches
of Manitoba, and giving birth to the towns of Flin
Flon, Snow Lake, Thompson, Leaf Rapids, and
Lynn Lake."
