Miner ponders tearing down iconic Sudbury structure

 Some call it an eyesore, while many others see it as one of Sudbury’s most easily identifiable and iconic landmarks.

By the end of the year, Vale is expected to determine the future of the Superstack, and decide whether or not it should be torn down.

“The reality is that there’s very little SO2 (sulphur dioxide) coming up the stack and it doesn’t make a lot of sense for use to use the stack further,” said Kelly Strong, Vale’s vice-president of Ontario and UK operations.
