1985 Northern Discovery Flight
On June 15th, while flying between Smithers and Stewart, we did some exploring along Observatory Inlet about 60 kilometers south of Stewart after discovering the abandoned sites of the communities of Anyox and Kitsault, and would have done a lot more exploring if we had larger fuel tanks. At Anyox, seen in this photo, a large copper mine and smelter supported a population of some 3,000 people by 1914, but in 1935 the mine was closed due to low copper prices and high costs of production.
