Supporting the Mining Industry in Sudbury

Supporting the Mining Industry in Sudbury

With nine operating mines, two mills, two smelters, and a nickel refinery, Sudbury is arguably the hard rock mining capital of the world.

Sudbury is home to a major geological structure in Ontario, Canada called the Sudbury Basin which is the third-largest crater on Earth, as well as one of the oldest.


Big Nickle

Its first mining company, Canadian Copper, was founded in 1886 and began smelting operations in 1888.

The manufacturing sector in Greater Sudbury has mostly grown out of the mining supply and service sector, in particular the mining of nickel. Many manufacturers, including Hercules SLR, supply equipment, machinery, and other machined industrial components to mining and supply service companies.
