The Blue Earth

Home  /  Aurora Wasteland  /  Current Page

Western Alberta is home to one of Canada’s largest logging industries. Logging in an area of boreal forest located in the Rocky Mountain and Foothills wilderness areas. This forest has been intact since the last Ice Age, approximately 10,000 years ago.

In 2006 a crew working an area near the city of Hinton noticed the ground after they had finished seemed to have a blue glow to it. Local forestry agents were called in to investigate. Their findings were limited and they attributed the blue glow to a new mineral.

The glow remains to this day.

The logging crews have since resumed work.

It’s unclear if information about the blue glowing dirt has been covered up by the government or the logging company.

Local teens often make the trip to the blue glow for drinking or fornication purposes.

The so called new mineral has never been found anywhere else.
