At 1:00 p.m. on April 21st, 1907, the "Million Dollar Stope" was created when the Good Enough Stope caved in dropping a horse and wagon 75' into a gaping hole. The driver had climbed down to see why his horse had stumbled only to find himself standing on the edge of a gaping aperture with his horse and wagon far below. The stope was estimated to be 300' L X 200' W X 100' H and only 1 to 2 feet from the surface in places. Over a million dollars in ore had been taken from the Good Enough in the 1880s. The horse survived and was led out through an underground passage. The "Million Dollar Stope" was a major tourist attraction for years. It was filled in the 1980s due to instability. Other collapses have occurred over the years.
