Yellowknife, NWT Photos

The NWT Mining Heritage Society has a large open-air display of old mining equipment set up at the old Giant Mine townsite a few miles northeast of Yellowknife on Highway 4, the Ingraham Trail. This impressive beast, called an Alligator, was brought north in 1948 to haul mining equipment across the rocks and muskeg Ė it didnít work, and the convoy was abandoned in the middle of nowhere.
