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 Museum recently presented at the Gwangmyeong Cave City Conference in South Korea.
Scott Thomson, Finning International’s President and CEO, visited the Britannia Mine Museum this week to provide a $100,000 donation for construction of the Terra Lab.
