Gold mine donation will inspire future geologists
Published on August 10 2011
There’s gold in them there hills, and entrepreneur David Bell is bringing evidence of it to Brock.
One of the founders of the world-class Hemlo gold mining site in northern Ontario, Bell and his wife, Brock alumna and geologist Angela Bell, have donated a number of core samples of ore mined from the camp to the University. They have also donated a number of documents – including photos, maps and reports - telling the story of the Hemlo deposit located about 350 kilometres east of Thunder Bay.
