They were  mining this hard rock place  for 35 years........... and gold never cracked $$40 bucks an ounce?! 

Discovered in 1930 by McIntyre Porcupine Mines, the Belleterre mine operated between 1936 and 1959 at a production rate of 350 tons per day with four shafts. Gold was mined from gold-bearing zones located along a 3.2 km strike length. A total of 2.18 million tonnes of ore grading an average of 10.73 g/t Au was extracted, primarily from Vein 12 (95% of production).

Theres  gold areas  in there to mine already,
