Thetford mines LAB Mine, Black Lake, QuebecCollecting at LAB Mine, Black Lake, Quebec

Thetford Mines is located on Rivière Bécancour in the Appalachians, about 110 km south of Québec City. It was named after the town of Thetford in Norfolk, Eng. Town was founded in 1876 after the discovery of large asbestos deposits in the area, and the city became a hub for one of the world’s largest asbestos-producing regions supplying more asbestos than any other area and Canada became the prime Asbestos supplier in the world. In 2001 the city expanded to its current boundaries, merging with Black Lake, Robertsonville, Pontbriand and Thetford-Sud.
