Historic Sites of Manitoba: Goldfield Stamp Mill Monument (Bissett, Northern Manitoba)

This monument in Bissett commemorates a Tremaine Stamp Mill erected in the early summer of 1914 near the Goldfield (Wingold) shaft. The first ore to be crushed in the mill was freighted over from the Chicamon claim, near Gold Lake, a few weeks before the start of the First World War. The gold in the crushed ore was recovered by the amalgamation process and a small brick valued at about one hundred and sixty dollars was poured. This was the beginning of the mining industry in Manitoba.
