Description From Owner:
  • Wingdam - The Wingdam mine was in operation here from about 1898 to 1938.
  • The early miners used wingdams (log cribbing filled with rock) to divert streams so that they could work the riverbeds below the dams.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
