Mining Village of Bourlamaque : Michelin's recommendations
Merged with Val-d'Or in 1965, this mining village was named after François-Charles de Bourlamaque, an aide of French General Montcalm. The village, which was declared a historic district in 1979, was administered exclusively by the Lamaque Mine, one of the main employers on the Cadillac Fault. The mine shaft, hospital and residence of the mine executives are intact, and the solid log cabins that housed the mine employees are still inhabited. The Cité de l'Or provides guided tours of Village Minier de Bourlamaque; in addition, visitors can see the surface buildings of the Lamaque Mine and descend some 91m/300ft into an authentic mine tunnel.
