"The site of one of the richest mines in the province, Hurricane Point sat along Isaac's Harbour, across from North Star Mine. It was at this site that one of the most well-known figures in Nova Scotian gold mining history, Dr. Faribault, went to work after leaving a larger company, GSC." Painting is one of a series by Purcell on display at the Museum of Industry and donated by WMC International Limited - Americas Division and Western Mining Corporation, Australia.
