Moyie was the initial Indus-, trial community of East Koo- tenay around 1900 when its fa- mous St. Eugene sirver-lead- zinc mine was running full blast. When the bottom fell out o( the base metals and silver mar- ket its fortunes dwindled fast, Ihough it never became a ghost town. St. Eugene operations had a brief Cominco revivial during the Second Work) War, then ceased entirely. The upper lake has always been the popular resort area with a long sandy beach at its north end, but railway lines along the east shore of both upper and tower lakes have al- ways reduced resort potential with 'access limited to crossing fences arid tracks. At Moyie community rnuch of the tailings from the miring jperation have hindered shore- line development in some sec- tions, but chief handicap has been no road access to its beach and boat launching areas....
