The Mining Monument

The Sudbury Mining Monument entitled, “999 Miners” is located on the western shore of Lake Ramsey in the City of Greater Sudbury’s Bell Park. “…this sculpture stands not only as a symbol of Sudbury’s economy, but also serves to honour and commemorate the thousands who have dedicated their lives and those who have lost theirs in the depths of the shafts.”

In recognition of Oliverio E. Massimiliano.
Founder and the chairman of the Mining Hertiage Committee who was the inspiration for the sculpture.
