Dates of existence
The Acadia Coal Company, incorporated in 1865, was organized by James D.B. Fraser of Pictou, NS, who discovered the famous Stellar coal. Acadia Coal commenced working the original McGregor seam, as well as the Acadia seam, which had been discovered about two miles south-west of the Albion seam. The discovery gave a new impetus to coal mining in the district; the Acadia Coal Company extended its operations, and companies such as the Nova Scotia, Vale and some eight others were eventually abandoned or merged with the Acadia Coal Company, whose operations were the largest in Pictou County.
