Scope and content

Image of man seated with shovel in mountainous area, loose asbestos fibre in background. This photograph is believed to be either a double exposure of two images, or a print made from two negatives at once. Photo depicts an unidentified man sitting on the south ridge of the Cassiar ore body, where the crusher and rock reject plant would eventually sit. Valley in background appears to depict the "Footwall Road," which was cut into the mountain from the pit to the crusher plant and became the mine's main haul road.
