We supply each visitor with a helmet and a lamp,

The Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta

Bellevue Underground Mine would like to give a huge thank you to the Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta. With the Foundation’s generous donation, we will soon be purchasing new miner’s helmets and two discovery cases. The discovery cases will allow the Bellevue Underground Mine to extend its programing beyond the mine site. Soon the discovery cases, accompanying programs, and artifacts will be traveling to schools, senior’s lodges, and youth groups.
