Description : The bronze statue depicts a miner
using an air leg drill, similar to what would have been used inside the mines. The rough finish on the
statue emphasises the often tough and dirty work of a miner. The statue is perched on a large rock, or should
we say, boulder ?

Boulder, western Australia.
History of the Miners Monument : The statue was
erected as a tribute to all the miners, past, present and future who have contributed to the success of the "Golden
Mile" in the State of Western Australia and Kalgoorlie - Boulder. The model for the sculpture was Merve Western.
