Description
McMarmac Red Lake Mine Ltd. was the eighth producing gold mine in Red Lake in 1940. In 1926, prospectors George Musclow and George Wilson were engaged to prospect these claims. They discovered massive visable gold over wide areas and it was stripped and opened up by trenching and was said to be spectacular by visiting prospectors. This was named 'The Picture Gallery of Free Gold' and many came to see this.
