The first European settlers were drawn to the region by black gold. They built the Harbour City on the coal mining industry. CTV's Bruce Williams takes us back in time to show us what it was like to toil in those underground mines. Follow Bruce Williams on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/CTVNewsBruce

http://www.ctvvancouverisland.ca http://www.facebook.com/ctvvi CUMBERLAND - Despite having its history deeply rooted in the early days of coal mining, this village in the Comox Valley is adding its voice to others questioning whether a possible mine in the region is a good idea. Councillors for the village of Cumberland passed a motion calling for a more thorough environmental review of the Raven Underground Coal Project, which is being proposed for the Union Bay area. The village joins Courtenay, Comox and the Comox Valley Regional District in looking for an independent provincial baseline study as well as a federal joint review panel to look into the project. The communities are particularly interested in having aquifer mapping completed. The Wilderness Committee congratulated the municipalities on their unified approach to the proposed mine and said that environmental problems created by the project would be too great for the area. The committee's Vancouver Island Campaigner Torrance Coste said the mine would only have a lifespan of 16 years and would threaten several sustainable industries in the area.

Filmed in 1988 before final demolition. Only the rotary kilns had been demolished at the time of filming. Accumulations of cement powder over the years built up like calcite formations seen in limestone caves. Very creepy to see cave-like formations at ground-level, growing on objects like lamp shrouds, railings, wiring, etc. It was even covering plate glass windows. I remember on the Malahat highway in the 70's, the cement pollution was so bad there was a white coating of crust on all the trees, telephone poles, etc. uphill from the plant.
