was first staked in the Hollinger and McIntyre area in 1910 and it is believed that nearby Gillies Lake was named after the
discoverer of the Hollinger deposit, Alex Gillies. Both the Hollinger and McIntyre Mines went into operation separately in
the period between 1910 and 1911 and operated continuously until their closure in 1968 and 1988, respectively. The McIntyre
Mill continued to operate until 1990 as a custom mill. Some surface mining took place on the Hollinger Mine property in the
late 1970's and early 1980's. Since 1910, over 19.5 million ounces of gold have been recovered from the Hollinger Mine while
about 10.8 million ounces were recovered from the McIntyre Mine along with 67,000 tons of copper.
