History: WCC - Greenhill Mine - Rotary Dumps '
West Canadian Collieries - Greenhill Mine
First rotary dump built about 1914-15 when West Canadian Collieries moved its operation to north side of Blairmore. Established an 'Endless Haulage' system from mine to tipple. A very good site, ideal candidate for preservation and development as part of coal museum, or coal industry interpretive centre.
