In a few words

The Quartier-Mitchell belvedere is a brand new observation platform of the landscape and the mining history of the city of Thetford.

This infrastructure provides access to a particularly revealing view of the city's past while highlighting the Mitchell district and its builders from the English-speaking community.

Discover the WOW point! A viewing platform on the edge of the turquoise waters of the Beaver mine.

In addition, this space will now allow all types of customers to observe the mining panorama since it was designed to be accessible to people with restricted mobility.

To get there: Corner of Dubuc and Mitchell streets in Thetford Mines.

Visit duration : 0.50 h

For Real!

Where does the turquoise color come from? Fine particles suspended in water reflect the blue and green wavelengths of sunlight. The effect is accentuated by the background of light rocks.
