Mining - Vancouver, British Columbia - Acrylic on hardboard 4ft. x 8 ft.

This mural is in the Chamber of Mines offices in Vancouver. It shows different mining scenes from British Columbia and the Yukon. Starting from the lower left and moving clockwise, there is an underground drilling scene, a head frame in the snow, a Yukon mining camp, a helicopter moving a drill in northern BC, a miner’s cabin, underground drilling in an asbestos mine, and a small mine car and adit. In the middle circle is an open pit mine. Different types of mining machinery are painted on the edge of the circle (the companies that make the machinery contributed toward the cost of the mural).
