Cassidy Mine, located approximately ten miles south of Nanaimo, was a small coal mining operation that employed five men in 1945. The workforce was reduced to two men in 1946.

Materials were donated to the Nanaimo District Museum in undocumented transactions and transferred to the Nanaimo Community Archives in 1993.

Fonds consists of accounts (1952); correspondence from Workmen's Compensation Board regarding the closure of the mine (1939 -1952); coal record (1938); coal sales (1933 -1945); comparative coal sales by month (1933-1952); committee records (1930 -1932) (the committee appears to be an accident committee of workmen that provided benefits and medical attention); and payroll (1943 -1952).
