Long Description:
As time is measured mining has three principal periods: Discovery, Development and Decline. There are numerous historical accounts of this process and how it has affected communities and their people.

Here is a giant sundial placed as a dynamic reminder of the mining area in Iron County and other mining communities ont he gogebic Range.

The morning shadow depicts the New Dawn of Discovery. At noon the sun and mining are at their zenith. The waning sun fortells the inevitable decline of very mining operation.

Sundial Type: Horizontal - Flat base, Ground or Pedestal mounted dial plate
