By 1909, the No. 1 Beaver Silver Mine shaft was officially being developed when, the Beaver Consolidated Mining company was sinking the shaft to 200 feet. Another production shaft known as the Beaver Mine No. 2 shaft was also being sunken to a depth of 75 feet below the ground. In general the Beaver Mine No.2 shaft operation was also commonly known to have been engineered 261 feet from the No. 1 shaft operation. Much of this operation was opened up by the first mine level which was station at 75 feet below the ground. All development on the first level is commonly considered to have connected the two shaft operations together in constructing one giant mining operation. Almost all of this connection was first engineered by a massive crosscut that was considered to have traveled 300 feet in order to connect the two shafts together.
Production on the mine's 200 foot level was also being developed during this time period when the company had started opening this section up by engineering crosscuts which were driven 75feet west and 325 feet east. Some drifting was known to have also occurred during this development phase but it wasn't considered to be that much. Another horrifying event in 1909, had cause a major fire that was responsible for damaging the power facility which supplied power to this mine. Production was however slowly continue when the company was bring power from a former neighbouring mine, known as the Timiskaming Mine.
By 1911,The winze shaft was being sunk from the 200-foot level to the 300-foot level, with a station at the 250-foot level. A small cage is used for hoisting in the winze. Poirer was mucking on the 250-foot level, and about 5 o'clock went out to the winze and asked his partner to ring down the cage. This was done, but the cage was not coming at once, so his partner went back into the drift, leaving Poirer standing in front of the winze with his hand on the raised guard-rail. It is thought that when the cage came down, Poirer attempted to board it without ringing it to the level, and in this way fell into the winze. The coroner's jury brought in the following verdict: "That Mytro Poirer came to his death at the Beaver mine, on November 4th, as the result of an accident from falling down the shaft; and that the Beaver Mining Company should be censured for their negligence in not keeping the shaft protected with a guard-rail
During the year of 1913, the company purchased the Erie-Cobalt property, consisting of 40 acres, lying east of the Beaver, and also 75 per cent, of the stock of the Beaver Auxiliary Mines (Donaldson claims) at Elk Lake. At the latter property active development work is being carried on, and it is proposed to sink the shaft at the Erie an additional 100 feet.
The main shaft at the Beaver mine was now known to have been driven to a depth of 730 feet, with levels as follows: First at 75 feet, second at 200 feet, third at 250 feet, fourth at 300 feet, fifth at 350 feet, sixth at 400 feet, seventh at 460 feet, eight at 530 feet, ninth at 600 feet, and the last level is station at 700 feet. All of this was done by 1913, after several years of operating and producing rich silver exactions.
The manager reports the following development work and stoping for the year: Drifting, 3,414.5 feet; cross-cutting, 744.5 feet; sinking, 185.5 feet; raising, 157 feet, and 4,316 yards of stoping. During the year the company shipped 689,921 ounces of silver. The capacity of the concentrating mill has been increased so that it has now a capacity of about 90 tons per day. During the year 17,842 tons of low-grade ore were milled, producing 278,511 ounces of si'lver.
In 1915, the Beaver Silver Mining Operation was undergoing some heavy production within all levels of it's project. Company officials had also further developed this massive silver operation by further sinking the shaft to another100 feet, and also adding more crosscuts, drifts, and raises towards this extraction operation.
Most of this had included 3,095 feet of drifting, 1,393 feet of cross-cutting, and 507 feet of raising that was done during this time period. A massive amount of stoping was also being developed to further extract the rick ore bearing material from the hard rock. All of this production had included 5,807 cubic yards As development continue the company had now created another station within the 900 foot level of this silver mining operation.
As production within the mine continued the company was also processing the rich material that was extracted from this huge operation. Production within 1915, had became so huge that the mill was processing a massive tonnage of ore that was estimated to have been 36,724 tons of material waiting to be processed into fine silver Blocks. Almost all of this processing was said to have contained 347.95 tons of concentrate that produced 415,707,86 ounces of silver.
Company officials had soon started further developing this mining zone within the following year of 1916, when a huge amount of development was taking place. All of this development was said to have consisted of 3,077 feet of drifting, 808 feet of cross-cutting and 848 feet of raising. Another expansion was also being done on the shaft when the Beaver Consolidated Mines Limited had started sinking this shaft to another 476 feet below the ground. Now the shaft was well engineered as it was sitting at 1,400 feet below the surface and had included two station points which were constructed at the 900 and 1,200 foot levels. At the time, company officials who owned and operated the Beaver Silver Mine in Cobalt, Ontario, Canada, had also intended to continue sinking the shaft further as they were strongly on a mission to reach the database sill. Diamond drilling which was done by the company had traced this location to 1,670 feet below the ground at the time.
Milling during 1916, was also increased when the 20 extra stamps became added and had now started a whole new production rate. The Beaver Silver Mine Mill was now producing anywhere from 125 to 150 tons of ore on a daily basis. Another huge amount of production was also taken from the mine when the mill was yet again ready to process another 30,093 tons of extracted silver ore. After the ore being fully treated the company was strongly considered to have produced 474 tons of concentrate that would end up yielding 349,000 ounces of silver towards the company's revenue.
By the following year the Beaver Silver Mine was undergoing some more development within all of its levels. Some of this development included further drifting, cross-cutting, and raising. The shaft was also being sunken further within the ground as it was now resting at 1,600 feet below the surface. Much of this was also becoming transformed when the company started opening this level up further within the rock. .A station was also added during this development phase that contributed further development of the 1600 foot level. In addition the Beaver Consolidated Mines Limited had commence further development of opening this level up when a series of cross-cuts became developed that traveled east and west from the main shaft section. Further within this section the company also encountered more encouraging silver deposits that also contributed some smaller ones with it. As development continued the company also started on another construction phase that was aimed towards the No. 1 cross-cut zone that was characterized as a massive quartz vein. A massive drift is also commonly considered to continue for quite a distance within this vein zone but has not presented any encouraging silver discover results for this company. Development on the No.2 cross-cut was also being started west of the vein zone when the company was on another mission to find more silver ore discoveries. Most of this exploration was first started when the company had notice a pure vein of native silver and leaf silver which was scattered along the rock wall for a distance of 4 feet. As development within this section continue, the company was well known for discovering another vein zone that would lead to another discovery. This whole discovery was first noted when the company had soon realize that the rich silver content was coming from the same vein which was all connected.
Milling procedures during 1917 had soon produced another shocking amount of silver that was commonly known for yielding 566, 964 ounce of silver. All of this was extracted from 34,766 tons of ore that became processed during that time period. Another property known as the Beaver Auxiliary property was considered to have not been in operation during this time period. However. the Beaver Consolidated Mines Limited did end up paying a huge amount of money towards its investors who got this mine going at a full scale. All of this dividend was strongly known to have place another $60,000 on top of its last years pay out. The company was also in control of another mining operation which was under development by the Kirkland Lake Gold Mining Company. This future gold mining claim was soon recognized as the Mckane Gold Mine Property. A shaft was also being driven during this time period by the former company who had started developing this mine further. In addition the company had sunken the shaft to about 500 feet below the ground and had soon open all the veins up with the construction of five ore levels. Each of these levels become stationed at the 100, 200, 300, 400, and 500 foot sections. A huge amount of development was also taking place when the company started creating drifts, crosscuts, and raises within the mining operation,
The Beaver Silver Mine was also experiencing a massive production rate within 1918, when the Beaver Consolidated Mines Limited had further developed this productional mine. Much of the work was mainly being focused on the No. 1 and No. 2 vein systems that had opened up another discovery zone within its development. The company had also started on a whole new exploration phase when they started drilling and blasting a 67 foot winze shaft below the 1,600 foot level of the Beaver Silver Mining Operation. Nothing further had escalated during this time period to commence further development within the mine. As the mine operators continued to hoist the ore from the mine, they had soon produced another huge amount of silver that was said to have been 372,973 ounces of high-grade silver.
A huge amount of ore was soon delivered towards the company's revenue yet again as the milling facility was able to produce 385, 042 ounces of silver within 1919. Most of the work was being aimed towards milling the highly rich ore that was still stock piled and ready to be processed. Some more explorations had also continued but the mine owners weren't uncovering any profitable findings. Even the lower mine workings became shut down for a few months till the company was once again ready to commence operations within 1919, All of this was being carried out with further development on the 1,400 foot level as the company was once again drilling in a crosscut to explore the vein within 1,600 foot level that carried lots of silver value for this company. Another section of the mine was also opened up when the company obtained the rights to mine another 200 foot section of virgin ground from the 200 foot level. Company officials had also further developed this claim when a whack of constructing was still in progress. All of this construction phase was said to have constructed 498 feet of drifting, 653 feet of cross-cutting, and another 290 feet of raising. As the year had started to come to an end, the Beaver Consolidated Mines Limited still had 19,763 tons of ore within the underground working which were still waiting to be hoisted to the surface.
Soon enough the Beaver Consolidated mines would end up further developing the mine when a new development phase was taking place. During 1920, the company had started on developing the mine further when another 1,650 feet of crosscutting and drifting was done on the mine workings. This also included further raising procedures that had obtain 220 feet of raising within the mining operation alone. A huge amount of stoping was also done that had soon amounted 5,935 cubic feet, compared to its previous year of only 3,285 yards. Nevertheless, most of the mine stoping still contained a large sum of ore that was commonly considered to have average 25, 696 tons of broken ore that still remained within these stopes. The mill had operated for 268 days during 1920, and had treated 26,974 tons of ore.
All production at the mine would end up closing in 1920, when the mine had face a shortage of power and labour towards this production. The Silver Market was also very discouraging for many mines as it had drop from $1,34 to only 0.64 cents. Almost all the work during this time period had included further developing this mine by adding 890 feet of drifting, 228 feet of crosscutting, 167 feet of raising, and 3,603 cubic yards of stoping. As the year had came to an end, the company was well known for producing a huge amount of silver that estimated 157,274 ounce of pure silver from all the processing.
