Jerome Mine is an unincorporated area and ghost town in the Unorganized North Part of Sudbury District in northeastern Ontario, Canada. It was a short-lived mining community and is located on Lake Opeepeesway.
Established in 1937 to house gold mine workers, the community had a population of 150 at its peak but was abandoned by 1945 after the mine ceased operations. The nearby community of Ramsey, also established as a company town for workers in the same mine, survived until 1988 as a lumber town.
The townsite is accessible via the Sultan Industrial Road.
