Up in the rugged mountains of the far Northern Coastal region of British Columbia sits the incredible Anyox Mine.
It is only accessible by boat and is located on Observatory Point in Granby Bay.
It is a harsh forbidding country.
Bears frequently wander the beaches.
The coastal area is a rainforest and receives on the average 22 feet of rain.
Further inland the rain turns to snow.
The mine as well as the townsite starts at approximately 800 feet up.
Copper and precious metals were taken out of the mine.
Copper is indispensable because it has both thermal and electrical properties.
It is used in the manufacture of machinery and coils.
Positive electrons move freely in copper so it can conduct electricity.
And electricity can be stored in copper covered toroids.
When copper toroidal coils rotate electric charges are created.
Copper can also be utilized for grounding atmospheric energy formerly called ether.
And electricity can be transmitted to copper on poles, towers and obelisks.
The townsite is now Canada’s largest ghost town.
It was formerly serviced with running water and electricity.
It had a 40 room hotel with a phone in every room.
There are also remains of huge enormous buildings right on the bay.
The roaring and fast paced Anyox river races down the mountainside to the Pacific Ocean.
A remarkable 150 high damn was built to convert the water power into electricity.
The damn has about 40 perfectly grooved arches and 3 huge penstocks to channel the river.
When exploring these large abandoned mines and the old equipment at the sites it will be remarked how technology went from the horse and buggy and pick and shovel straight to state of the art machinery.
But that doesn’t make any sense.
The official story is that the mine began in 1911 and quit operations in 1935.
But the real history is that is was abandoned over 200 years ago during the Reset Period of the early 1800’s.
And was reopened in 1911 and was only profitable for 25 years.
The mine has many levels and an extensive tunnel system of over 5 miles with many vertical shafts.
Two full sized, 40 ton, 36 gauge electric locomotives went far into the mine.
They had two bells on top to alert workers.
They pulled heavy train cars full of the copper and precious metals.
Then outside went over 2 massive ore bins as the track continued upon on a very high trestle bridge.
In between the immense ore bins was a Control Tower which oversaw operations.
Inside the mine the track had power switches, phones, signals and lights.
Large ore cars with gate cantilevers were used to haul on the rails the crude yet valuable stones.
The ore was also transported through the many ore bins.
The tunnels were fitted with steel and copper cable lines for electricity, air and water.
Also located in the mine was an enormous, 4 story crusher with huge 8 inch teeth.
This crusher also has mammoth 8 inch bolts with 12 inch nuts that was serviced with a massive wrench that can hardly be lifted.
It has immense wheels which ran on rails.
It has a high tech drive motor, belt and drums along with a crane and hoist.
Large beams of timber 12×12 and larger were used for support, planks and overpasses.
Ladders stretched for sometimes over a hundred feet in the numerous incline shafts.
The main area was equipped with an elevator!
Outside there was a coke plant, steam plant, concentrator plant, brick plant, a sawmill and other undetermined buildings of tremendous size.
There was two gigantic brick powerhouses each consisting of 10 large bays which are wall recesses with curved windows.
A huge smelter plant with 2 tall beautifully built brick smokestacks about 200 feet high.
Another chimney tower is approximately 150 feet high and 20 feet in diameter.
There were slushers, muckers, crushers and compressors some located inside the mine.
Also there were hoppers which are freight cars able to discharge it’s contents through it’s floor.
Enormous pipes were used for water distribution.
In an outside building there was a 15 ton crane.
Various other equipment can be seen such as riveted and bolted girders, metal trusses, valves, levers, clutches, gears, cylinders, generators, winches, grinders and gaskets some inside the mine others hoisted high up in different buildings.
These buildings had steel stairs with railings and were of expert craftsmanship.
The remains of one building is approximately 7000 square feet with curved windows and has the appearance of a medieval castle.
A few hundred feet long electric conveyer belt transported the valuable minerals to the wharf onto a barge where 4 steamships were utilized to carry it away.
A golf course was located right on the bay but is now covered with slag from current surface mining of abrasives used for pavement and roofing.
Higher up in the mountains is the Bonanza Creek Quartzite Mine that had a tram running all the way to the ocean.
Also in the dense, rugged almost inaccessible mountains there is the giant Hidden Creek Mine.
The amount of expertise to create all the aforementioned is overwhelming!
It is unsurpassed even to this day and never ceases to amaze!
How exactly could they carve out many levels of tunnels that can go thousands of feet deep and go laterally for miles.
Using dynamite would be totally insufficient.
Dynamite is only used in recent mining operations and has caused the collapse of many tunnels.
Carving out whole tunnel systems with just hand held rock drills would be a very slow process and take centuries.
The placement of the huge logs in the mines for stabilization would be a mammoth undertaking to say the least.
Technology manufactured with iron and copper that is supposed to suddenly appear are milling and smelting machines, hydraulic equipment, rock drilling machines, pumping engines, steam engines, hoisting machinery, stamp mills for crushing and all the mining tools.
And how was all this incredibly heavy machinery transported up the steep, harsh terrain of the Antyox Mountains?
There are endless mines elsewhere in Canada, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, Montana and Idaho with similar unbelievable stories.
Such as all the equipment that was supposedly hauled to California for the make believe Gold Rush that lasted only a year and a half.
Just like the story of the Chinese using dynamite to build railroad track through the granite rock of the Sierra Mountains is untenable.
So is the story of early miners carving out vast tunnel networks using picks, shovels, dynamite or hand held drills.
And transporting heavy equipment that supposedly suddenly appeared on the scene.
