The Cadia East underground mine commissioned Gillie and Marc to create a bronze sculpture of a miner for their official opening, which was held in November 2013. In extreme environments, such as those faced in mines, communication and togetherness are critical for survival. The miner sculpture for Cadia East reminds people to cherish the kinship developed between workers, and instils a sense of pride in employees and the community for their affiliation with the mining industry.
