The towering Copper Cliff smelter 'Superstack' is an iconic structure on Greater Sudbury's skyline. The Superstack symbolizes both the primary role that mining plays in the Greater Sudbury region, as well as the evolving challenge of managing the environmental impacts of this industry. This GeoTour provides a close up view of this massive chimney from a park in a nearby historic neighbourhood of Copper Cliff, and a look at some nearby early mining history.
