Mining and Gravel Mine Operations
Carey Canada Inc. Mining Company
The Cary Canada Inc. Mining Company was without a doubt Tring-Jonction's most important company.
The asbestos deposit was discovered in 1952. Its chrysotile asbestos content turned out to be sufficient to justify the construction of a processing plant, which went on from 1955 to 1958. The year 1959 marks the beginning of operations, up until the end of 1979. It employed around 525 people and 25 to 30 houses were built in Tring. The mill was open six days a week: from midnight on Sunday to midnight on Saturday. After several problems with unionized employees and maple syrup producers, and also due to prosecutions in the United States, the company ceased its operations altogether on April 25, 1986.
