Baie Verte

Baie Verte is a town located on the northeast coast of the island portion of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador on the Baie Verte Peninsula.GeographyBaie Verte is one of 42 communities that make up the Emerald Zone which is located in the North Central portion of Newfoundland. Baie Verte dates to the late 19th century, but remained a small village until the discovery of asbestos and other ore bodies of copper, lead, zinc and gold in the mid-1950s when the town underwent major expansion. Bowering Brother's steamers called in the area in the 1950s to transport the ore found here. It became a town in 1968.The major "Baie Verte fault line" starts here and runs from here to Long Island Sound by way of Vermont.HistoryIn the 1970s the town was gripped by a strike by asbestos miners over working conditions which lasted for 15 weeks.Notable people Brad Brown, National Hockey League player
