The following article was originally published in the Spring 2019 edition of What's Insight magazine.
The Sleeping Giant was produced as part of a revitalization project of a former iron-smelting blast furnace. It held a special place in the hearts of the local population, many who worked there when it was in operation, and it needed to find a new way to tell its story.
One of the oldest pieces of Mill no.3 is the skip—a 3-tonne rail car that transported equipment to and from the upper levels of the Mill.
The grind of machinery. The shouts of workers. The boom of ore hitting metal chutes. Mill No. 3 at Britannia Mine was once a hub of noise and production. Come 2019, we’re bringing back the noise.
