Wildcat Days - Friday July 1st & Saturday July 2nd 2016

During the 19th and early 20th centuries, the exploration and extraction of the abundant resources in the lower Elk Valley continued, but few settlers braved the challenges of the wilderness frontier in the Elkford area. One prominent character – ‘Wildcat’ Charlie Weigert – was a trapper well known for his hospitality in the area, and of which the annual Elkford celebration ‘Wildcat Days’ is named.

Tour of Line Creek Operations - sponsored by Elkford, Fernie & Sparwood Chamber of Commerce

District of Elkford

Monday October 21st, 2013  

A total of 21 Chamber of Commerce members travelled by coach to Line Creek Operations and enjoyed an overall tour followed by a presentation and tour of the Selenium Water Treatment Plant. This was a hugely informative and interesting trip and we would take this opportunity to sincerely thank all the staff involved at Line Creek for their hospitality and enthusiasm to answer the many questions. 

A special thank you again to all from Teck Coal who were involved, in particular Tammy Ogden and Ian Anderson ... sometimes it's the little extras which make all the difference.
