Marmora and Lake

Marmora and Lake

Marmora and Lake is one of Hastings County’s 14 municipalities, a beautiful little gem located in central southern Ontario. The largest village, Marmora, is surrounded by water from Crowe River, Crowe Lake and Beaver Creek. The area was known for its rich iron content and mining operations began as early as the 1820’s to extract and smelt this mineral. Today you will find a quaint, charming place with a lot to do and see. Explore Marmora and Lake!

Marmora Mine

The open pit mine measured approximately 1700 feet by 1200 feet and reached 600 feet deep; over time, underground streams and rainfall have slowly filled two thirds of the mine with water, so much so that it is now officially classified as a lake.

  

Deloro Mine Site

 The Deloro Mine Site has a rich and important history. From its place in the Madoc Gold Rush, to its innovations in creating and producing metals and alloys, Deloro played a key role in the history of mining and industry in Canada. There are many stories to be told about the Deloro Mine Site, its geology, its industry, its innovation and its people. There are also important lessons to be learned about the consequences of reckless exploitation of the environment – a legacy of our uninformed past – and the extensive cleanup that must follow.
