Anyox is an abandoned site – former mining town in remote northwest British Columbia, Canada.
The town is located approximately 60 kilometers southwest of the town of Stewart, British Columbia on the shores of Observatory Inlet. At the beginning of the 20th century, the town of Anyox grew to 3,000 inhabitants, as the nearby mountains were rich in copper and other valuable metals, which were mined. During the early 1930s, the mines were completely excavated and the number of miners dropped to 0. During the 1940s, most of the machinery and steel was taken down from the town and a forest fire destroyed the remaining wooden buildings.
Today, the city is a ghost town and is largely destroyed and abandoned.
