Murray Mine Discovery Site Marker

The marker says it all. The nickel discovery site in the now-flooded and defunct Murray Mine is where Sudbury's remarkable mining history begins. When the mine finally closed in 1924, more than half a million tons of ore had been shipped from its depths. The marker sits on a large, paved pull-out along regional highway 35, about five kilometers outside Sudbury city centre. From there visitors can look toward the flooded mine site, or head in the opposite direction down a short path to the rail bed of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
