Join authors John Sandlos and Arn Keeling, Professors of History and Geography at Memorial, as they launch their new book, Mining Country: A History of Canada’s Mines and Miners. Published by Lorimer Press, this book is the culmination of 14 years of research on the history of mining, especially in northern Canada. Illustrated with over 150 archival photographs, Mining Country is the first comprehensive history of mining places and mining people in Canada. The book also focuses on the environmental costs of mining, and the interactions between the industry and Indigenous communities. A limited number of copies of the book will be available for sale at this event.
