Material
mineral, galena & sphalerite
Catalogue Number
112.03.1081
Description
Mineral specimen, predominant mineral is galena (lead sulfide), with sphalerite (zinc sulfide). Silver is associated with this ore but is not visible. Small calcite crystals are present also.

Galena; Sphalerite Mineral
Date

Material
mineral, galena & sphalerite
Dimensions
5.0 x 6.0 x 10.0 cm
Description
Mineral specimen, predominant mineral is galena (lead sulfide), with sphalerite (zinc sulfide). Silver is associated with this ore but is not visible. Small calcite crystals are present also. This looks like an ore sample from the mines in Pine Point, N.W.T. In the 1960s, this ore was shipped by train through the Bow Valley to Trail, B.C. to be refined. The sparkly nature of the ore resulted in many specimens being plucked from boxcars as they travelled along. Piece of adhesive tape on underside reads: “Lucky Jim silver.”
