Push Needle to Earth’s Core? Timmins Celebration Includes Underground Set

Photo taken by reporter Len Gillis of the Timmins Times.

As part of the 40th anniversary celebration, the Timmins, Ontario, more tha branch of the Taoist Tai Chi Society took a tour of the old section of the Hollinger Gold Mine, where they did a set, perhaps the first ever done so deep underground. Pu-erh tea and sweets were served back at the club. Timmins is a small city in northeastern Ontario on the Mattagami River. Due to a rich deposit of gold in the areas around Porcupine Lake, Timmins was the site of a small but prosperous gold rush at the beginning of the last century. Today the gold mine is a popular tourist attraction.
