There’s a joke going around that Canada is just three mining companies posing as a country by stacking on top of each other and wearing a trenchcoat, but that leaves out so many companies. This map (with a surprisingly on-trend colour scheme) shows what made modern Sudbury — the Laurentian, Huronian, Cambrian, and greenstone geologies colour-coded at top left, and the seven mining companies active circa 1900 at top right. Sudbury itself sits just a bit down and to the right of map’s centre, a speck amongst the lines and forms.
