“Impressive”
Reviewed 26 July 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 8 July 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 1 February 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.
