Cassiar is a ghost town in British Columbia. It was a small company-owned asbestos mining town located in the Cassiar Mountains of Northern British Columbia. After forty years of operation, starting in 1952, the mine was unexpectedly forced to close in 1992. The closure was driven by a combination of factors including diminished demand for asbestos and expensive complications faced after converting from an open-pit mine to an underground mine. Most of the contents of the town, including a few houses, were sold off and trucked away. Most of the houses were bull-dozed and burned to the ground in this resource town north of Dease Lake. Today the streets are bare and flowers bloom where the houses once stood. Residents living between the townsite and the Stewart-Cassiar Highway, and on the highway itself, who originally obtained phone service from the Cassiar exchange, were moved to the nearby Good Hope Lake exchange in fall 2006 and the Cassiar exchange shut down.
If you are travelling in the area, Cassiar is located close to Dease River Indian Reserve 3, Black Friday Lake, Deep Gulch, Boya Lake and Ed Asp Creek.
