Frood Mine

Frood Mine

Frood Mine is a nickel mine in Greater Sudbury, Ontario.

During World War II, Frood Mine alone accounted for a full 40 per cent of all the nickel used in Allied artillery production. In 1989, Frood Mine shared the John T. Ryan Trophy for the best occupational safety record among Canadian mines in the previous year.

The mine is named for Thomas Frood, an employee of the federal department of Crown lands who prospected and staked many of the early mining claims in the area. A major arterial road in the city is also named for Frood.
