“The Frank Slide was a rockslide that buried part of the mining town of Frank, Northwest Territories,Canada, at 4:10 a.m. on April 29, 1903. Around 110 million tonnes (121 million US tons) of limestone rock slid down Turtle Mountain. Witnesses reported that the rock had reached up the opposing hills within 100 seconds, obliterating the eastern edge of Frank, the Canadian Pacific Railway line and the coal mine. It was one of the largest landslides in Canadian history and remains the deadliest, as between 70 and 90 of the town's residents were killed, most of whom remain buried in the rubble. Frank Slide interpretive Centre is a must visit it is am amazing sight to see in person, a part of Alberta and Canadian History. I have done the tour and would highly recommend. Please note the province of Alberta was not created until September 1905, more than two years after the slide. The community was still part of the Northwest Territories when the incident occurred.”
