Save the Robertson Headframe!

Newmont Mining has awarded a contract to demolish Con Mine's Robertson headframe this year. Over 400 petitions were collected over the past two years in an effort to show the government and the mining company of the public desire to save the Robertson headframe. You can sign the petition at this website. Here were some of the comments of support:

This is definitely a YK landmark and should become an historical building! I was born and raised here; as were my kids. It just wouldn't be the same if it weren't there. Whenever I am away and then return, once I see the headframe, I know that I am home!

·  Mike Vaydik Canada, Yellowknife

I found it surprising that the cost is 2 million over 25 years and we are still wobbling over whether we should save this or not. Although $80000 per year may sound like a lot, but if you were to really think about the eventual benefits and that eventually (sooner than later) a group will take that on and bring so much more back to our community that we seem to be obliterate more and more every year!!

I think it should be preserved! It is really the only standing piece of genuine history left in the city that is not falling down or beyond repair. . With a bit of planning it would be a great asset to tourism. It could stand as a memorial to all the people who earned a income in gold mining. It could be a museum a restaurant. There are many, many things that could be done with it to attract tourists and to simply preserve the history of the city for generations to come. Not to mention it is used by boaters and pilots as a navigational land mark.

The Robertson Headframe is a symbol of Yellowknife's past that needs to be preserved, particularly as it serves as such a useful and unique landmark. The current political sway in the NWT is to wipe any evidence of mining off the face of the northern landscape. Within the City, I'd rather have the headframe than all the boulders that have been methodically spewed around town under the guise of "landscaping".

Depends. Keep it and what will it be used for? If it is used, will it be cost effective? OR take it down, and reuse the land? Is that possible? As is stands what is going to cost the tax payer less money?
