Although I have not been photographing the mine as long as it’s been around I am however happy that I was at least a small part of documenting some of the people, procedures and facilities of Stobie Mine here in Sudbury Ontario for the past 6 years. Watching the last skip on the big screen with the head frame just outside the tent was a bitter sweet moment for a lot of people who have called this mine home, and although a time capsule was created with various items commemorating the past, present, and hopefully future of Stobie mine, the memories of this place will be held dear to most peoples hearts who worked there. Thanks again Stobie, it was a pleasure.
