Name of creator

Administrative history

Adco Explorations Ltd. was a geological consulting firm operating in Duluth, Minnesota, U.S.A.

Custodial history

These records were initially in the custody of the University of Minnesota, who forwarded the records to the Ontario Department of Mines. They were maintained in the Department's library for many years, and transferred to the Archives of Ontario by the Department in 1987 during renovations to the library.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of files on potential sites for lucrative mining in Northwestern Ontario, which appear to have been gathered by Adco Explorations. Few of the materials in the files were originally created by Adco, or for the company. Rather, they were created by a wide variety of government of Ontario mining experts, other exploration companies, and private individuals. Files commonly contain correspondence, reports, and sketches and other notes regarding potential sites. Files exist for sites at Carp River, Nipigon, near Thunder Bay, Loon Lake, Steep Rock Lake, Black Sturgeon Lake, Nipigon, and other places in northwestern Ontario.
