Porcupine Mining Monument
In the early 1900's mining operations in the region of Timmins-Porcupine became home to dozens of prospectors during the "Porcupine Gold Rush". The Lions Club commissioned Laura in 2007, to create the Procupine Miner's Memorial as a tribute to the 594 miners killed, to their families and to preserve the mining history that was so important to the development of Northern Ontario.
This monument is highlighted by a 10 foot bronze miner, standing in-front of an iconic granite head frame, accompanied by his family in bronze. The names of 594 miners are engraved on an adjustment granite tribute.
