Timmins Police Service are asking parents to speak to their children about the dangers of trespassing on local historic mine sites.

There has been an increase in the amount of calls by Police to defunct mining properties off of Vipond Road, Goldmine Road in the Delnite and Buffalo Ankerite areas. In some cases mischief to the fencing has signage has taken place. If youth are found by police on the sites they will be charged with trespassing. Police are hoping that parents can help remind their children before any formal charges are handed out.
