Giants of Mining


See the unbelievable size of a decommissioned 2400-ton bucketwheel, Gigantic draglines, and of course the Syncrude plant right next door which shows you the magnificence of the industry.

A 30-minute drive north of Fort McMurray gets you to the Syncrude Giants of Mining Exhibit. This tour lets you get a close up look at some of the early equipment involved in the harvesting of Alberta’s oil sands.
