Mining Monument & Miners Memorial Park

The Miners Monument was officially opened on April 28, 2007 to honour the community's mining legacy.

Created by Laura Brown Breetvelt, a former Elliot Lake resident, this monument was built to honour the hard working miners who risked their lives each day and the community and families that supported them. Adjacent to the Monument lies the Mining Memorial, where names of workers from the Elliot Lake mines who died of workplace accidents or occupational illnesses are engraved for posterity. The Monument and Memorial Park provides a breathtaking view of the Horne Lake Escarpment and access to scenic nature trails as well as picnic facilities and parking
