- In 1897 the Lorne mineral claim was staked, and it became the Lorne mine. In 1931 the Bralco Development and Investment Company acquired the mine, and a new company, Bralorne Mines Limited, was formed to operate the mine.
- The new name, Bralorne, was a compound of Bra, for Bralco, and Lorne, the name of the mine. Bralco consists of the first two letters of British, Alberta, and Columbia.
