Review

Island Copper Mine is situated on northern Vancouver Island. The Story
of Island Copper chronicles the mine’s history from its opening in
1971 to its closure in 1996, and focuses on the “personalities” and
personnel involved in the mine during its operating years. The glossy
large-format book contains a detailed text illustrated with numerous
photographs. For residents of Vancouver Island who were affected by the
mining developments or for those who avidly follow the trials and
tribulations of the mining sector, the book may prove interesting. For
the general reader, however, it will have limited appeal.
