“Impressive”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

It's worth a quick stop.Despite its size, the facial features are clear and evocative. There's a plaque describing miners' experiences.

“Remarkable anywhere - unexpected here!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

The 3rd tallest free-standing statue in the US - and it's up in the Minnesota Iron Range. One of their best-kept secrets! A very nice tribute to the people that mine iron-ore to make steel for the rest of the world. The plaque could have given a bit more info - we found out additional history of the statue from the Minnesota Discovery Center (just across the highway).

“Massive Undertaking - Sculpture and Mining”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

The size of the sculpture is awesome and represents the size and importance of mining well. The miner in the sculpture doesn't look like most miners I have seen in historical photos. There is a nice parking lot at the base of the sculpture. It is not a "rest area", so do not expect a bathroom. Nor is it a "tourist trap", no gift shops. It is simply a sculpture to be admired and to get you thinking about how massively important miners and mining were and are to the Iron Range and Minnesota.
