The paper discusses the development of the most northerly Asbestos Mine in Canada. It describes the port facilities which were provided to ship out the mine product and bring in the essential fuel and supplies within the annual three month ice-free shipping period. The remoteness of the property and the inhospitable geography, offering little or no shelter from the incessant wind, long sub-zero winter nights, deep perma-frost and a harbor open for shipping only three months a year, posed many interesting engineering and logistics problems not normally encountered in asbestos mining operations.
