Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James is a township in the Canadian province of Ontario, located within the Timiskaming District. The primary community within the township is Elk Lake, which is located at the junction of Highway 65 and Highway 560. The township had a population of 414 in the Canada 2006 Census. Elk Lake began as a mining boom town when native silver was discovered in James Township in 1906. Mining activity peaked between 1907 and 1913, when there were about thirty active mining properties in the area. The population at one point reached almost 10,000 people. By 1908 the town included six large hotels, many stores, warehouses, banks, lawyer's offices, a post office, a hospital and a Mining Recorder's Office. The town of Elk Lake was incorporated in 1909 as the Corporation of the Township of James. The Township's first Reeve was the famous athlete and prospector Jack Monroe.show more
