When the Well Runs Dry - Uranium City, Saskatchewan


In 1982, Uranium City, Saskatchewan was a thriving mining town of almost 10,000 people. There were movie theatres, car dealerships, and (legend has it) even a brothel. The mine closed without warning, and pretty soon the stores, hospitals, police stations and most of the people left. There less than 70 people left in this remote, fly-in only part of the northern Canadian wilderness. The few residents that remain, these thirty years since the mines closed, are hearty, determined, resourceful and free - and they wouldn't change a thing.
