Falaise Lake Tunnel … on the 13th of March 1971, Jack took his tape recorder into the 800 foot level of the old Le Roi workings. The workings had been flooded to the 300 foot level since they were abandoned in 1929, and no one had been on the 800 foot level since then.
Mt Roberts … in 1968 Jack took his tape recorder to the top of Mt Roberts and talked about the view from a geological perspective. You can hear a blast at the moly mine on the back of Red.

<> Last Train To Rossland … In 1966 a few months after CPR shut the track down, Jack McDonald got on the train with his tape recorder in Tadnac for the last run to the top of the track in Rossland to start removing track at the top of the Wye. A couple days later, on the last run into the yard Harry Lefevre hosted the track removal ceremony, also caught on Jack’s tape recorder.
<> Falaise Lake Tunnel … In 1971 Jack and his tape recorder accompanied a group of men into the drainage tunnel which drained the mines down to the 800 foot level … no one had been below the 300 foot level since Cominco shut the mines down in the 1920s.
<> Mt Roberts … In 1968 Jack took his tape recorder to the top of Mount Roberts and spoke of the geology of his view as he turned 160 degrees … he happened to capture a blast at the mine, which was still operating at the time and left behind the Pits on the west side of Red Mt
