Silver was first discovered in Cobalt, Ontario in 1903 by workers laying tracks for T&NO railway which aimed to connect the Northern Territories to Southern Ontario. Workers found open veins of silver and quickly staked claims to these finds. By the following Spring, prospectors were flooding to Cobalt Station hoping to strike it rich in the newly opened Silver mines. Within five years, Cobalt produced and shipped 9% of the world's silver, worth millions of dollars.
