Wawa Ontario Canada was soon home to many mining operations that became discovered throughout the dense wilderness where no roads existed. Almost all mining projects within this region were known to have special connections with the Algoma Central Railway (ACR). Another mining operations that contributed a lot of its own support towards the railway industry became known as "The Deep Lake Mine Project". In general geological terminology the Deep Lake Mine was first discovered in 1936, which became located 3 miles southeast of Wawa Ontario and 1/4 of mile from Deep Lake. Nevertheless, the Deep Lake Mining Operation was first owned and operated by three different mining firms that became identified as JC Canfield, W.H Hocking, and the Deep Lake Mine Syndicate. These three corporate owners were soon underway with the official development of a 34 degree incline shaft operation that was sunken to an inclined depth of 155 feet below ground levels. Unlike many larger mining operation within the area, the Deep Lake Mine Project was rather known as a small scale prospect zone that held a steady gold strike that was 35 feet long and had a small width of 1 1/2 feet. Almost all development stage were known to have taken place on this mines 100 foot level as drifting was now reaching 455 feet and another 60 feet of crosscutting was also conducted on this section. During the mines productive years the Company and its two individuals had soon erected a small milling compound that was use to treat 20 tons of ore per a day. Another file transformation was being done between the firm and the two individuals as they were ready to put this project under one company name. So the Deep Lake Gold Mine Limited became the next event to occur toward this project as the mine was going through heavy production in 1934. As the newly establish firm transferred their files, the company started on a whole new drilling phase to determine if it was worth deepening the mine further. As drill results came in from the core samples this had soon indicated that another profitable ore body could be mine from this section. The No.1 Deep Lake Mine Shaft was now resting at 200 feet below ground levels as further mining commenced. and contained a medium size production level. A small amount of lateral development was also created from this huge expanding phase till the mine became officially abandoned in 1938 due to financial reasons. However the deep lake mining operation was also known for extracting a pretty high pure gold production rate that was determined to have extracted 1,633 ounces of gold and 50 ounces of silver. All of this was strongly known to have been milled from about 2,700 tons of processed ore before it closure. Not much production on this claim has been done since this time period as the mine once again laid dormant from any more further extractions or explorations.
