Graham Agassiz in Digging for Galena – Full Film

From the peaks of the Selkirk Mountains above Retallack Lodge comes a new project from Graham Agassiz and Mindspark Cinema: Digging for Galena is a short film exposing the new Texas Peak trail through parallel storylines of exploration and adventure. Grab a cold one, sit back, and enjoy a great short film…

For thousands of years we have been scratching through dirt and rock looking for our fortunes. Over a century ago, pioneers carved deep into the mountains surrounding Retallack Lodge, risking ruin in exchange for an ore rich in silver, zinc and lead. They were Digging for Galena.

Today, exploration and adventure comes full circle with the building of Texas Peak, one of the most adrenaline-packed gravity trails ever created. Join Graham Agassiz as he takes you on a journey that blurs the lines between here and yesteryear — a story of risk, adventure and great reward.
