We went to see this part of Canadian history before it is demolished. Impressive in its size (100’ diameter) and height- second tallest structure in Canada

The news had the story about the 2 smaller stacks that will replace this one next year. The plan is to take the superstack down starting in 2020 depending on the budget. It has always been a beacon arriving in Sudbury from any direction. Not really a tourist attraction but you can get really close to the bottom in Little Italy where the plaque honouring the Italians that live there is.

Look it up before it is history

The tallest thing for a real long ways! And used to be the tallest chimney anywhere in North America. But they are now building short stacks better suited to the small amount of smelter off-gas now emitted. In a few years, this will lose it's local cloud and be shut down, probably torn down.

Inside the Sudbury Smelter, is the tallest smoke stak in the world. This engineering smoke stack takes the toxic byproduct of smelting ore's and sends them up into the air, to disperse and land far away from Sudbury. We now have a much better environment in Sudbury due to the Super stack. It is very tall and thousand of tons of concrete were used to build it.

Definitely really cool but...

But you gotta get as close as you can. You cant tell how really big it is unless you can get to the very bottom which seemed hard to do and you must look it up on wikiedia or something. We ended up in an employees parking lot to get close. I know we could have been closer. Its sort of amazing when you think about the size , how far the smoke goes, and that they say it will be coming down in a few years. How are they going to get this thing down?

An area landmark that has been standing since the late 1960s. to really appreciate it's height, go to its base in Little Italy in Copper Cliff. There has been talk of it being demolished since the new technologies will minimize emissions. See it before it's gone.

Confused?

Do not be fooled this is not much of an attraction there is no tours or much to see. You can see the stack from miles away and is known to the locals as a symbol of home. It resides on Inco property which usually you cannot access. For historical information I suggest going to dynamic earth, it most likely would be posted there

A superstack?
Aug 2017 • Friends
I don't really understand how this is a tourist attraction, there is no formal tour of the smokestack and never has been, and I assume there will never be. You can drive by it and look up at it, it's pretty cool and has been a landmark in Sudbury for generations. You can see it from all over the city, and that is all there is to see. I wouldn't make the ride out to Coppercliff just to see it.

See it while it's still there.

This stack was built several decades ago to help with local pollution. It did help in that the pollution that was coming out was distributed over a wider and distant area. It's not great guns as a tourist attraction but just to see it from both a distance and then from the worker's parking lot or a small park in the Italian section of Copper Cliff makes for an awesome sight. It's MASSIVE!
Plans are in place for taking it down.
