BRITANNIA BEACH, BC, April 15 /CNW/ - The BC Museum of Mining has
launched a new program "Gateways to Our Past" celebrating BC's heritage and

massive historic structure through a new glass barrier. The hand-powered audio
guides reflect the museum's commitment to the environment and sustainability.
The other audio guides located at the entrance to a mining tunnel and
overlooking Howe Sound provide more stories and a welcome message from
This program was funded by a grant from the BC 150 Heritage Legacy Fund.
