Sapan Hin Mining Monument

A land reclamation project provided abundant new land now used for parks and public facilities at Sapan Hin, located where Phuket Road meets the sea in Phuket Town.

In the circle is the Tin Mining Monument, shaped like a large drill bit, dedicated to the memory of Captain Edward Thomas Miles, the Australian who brought the first tin dredge to Phuket in 1909.

The monument was built in 1969 on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of tin dredging in Phuket. A sport center is located in the park.
