The true history of ill-fated Roc-d’Or
24 February 2021
Roc-d’Or was a village of squatters that popped up in northwestern Quebec in 1936. The mining village, which disappeared a decade later, is still known as a den of iniquity. But was it really? In this new project, Boom and Bust in a Mining Village: The Sad Fate of Roc-’Or, the Société d’histoire de Malartic reveals the true history of Roc-d’Or through 16 stories and more than 50 images. The project was created in partnership with the Musée minéralogique de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue.
