Seen on the TV show Creepy Canada, the Wabana Iron Ore Mines began around the turn of the 20th century. The mines included 6 shafts and operated for 71 years; the mines closed in June 1966 after producing 79 million tons of iron ore. It was tragic mining accidents that led to the haunting here: Ghost miners are said to be seen both inside and outside the sealed mines. Some even say that at 5 p.m. when it was time for a shift change, a whole stream of ghostly miners has been seen entering or exiting.
