The 1989-built, 11,898-dwt, 8,893-grt heavy cargo strengthened bulk carrier Kopalnia Borynia is seen in this photograph while she was transiting upbound in the Welland Canal during the afternoon hours of November 30th, 2002. At the time the picture was taken she was sailing southbound in the canal just south of lock 3 which is located in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. Photograph by Jeff Cameron.

She was built in Szczecin, Poland as hull number B547/01 by Stocznia Szczecinska im A. Warskiego for the Polish Steamship Company (Polska Zegluga Morska - PZM) as Kopalnia Borynia. She is one of many similar ships that have been built in Poland and in recent years the Kopalnia Halemba and Kopalnia Ziemowit have visted the Great Lakes as well. When this picture was added to the archives in 1/2003 Kopalnia Borynia was still operational as such for her Polish owners.
