Toburn Operating Authority Mission Statement
"The Toburn Operating Authority is dedicated to the preservation of the historic Toburn Mine Site as a community parkland and as a monument to Kirkland Lake's mining history."
The Toburn Operating Authority is a volunteer organization committed to restore, develop and preserve the Toburn Mine Site to commemorate its historic value to the Town of Kirkland Lake. The Organization will administer and maintain it as a multi-use facility that includes recreation, education, tourism and promotion for the Kirkland Lake area.
The property is owned by the Town of Kirkland Lake and is being operated under an Agreement between the Toburn Operating Authority and the Town. The project has been funded to-date by donations from both private and public sources. Additional funding will be derived from the rental of several buildings on the site.
