At the official opening of Hudbay’s Lalor Mine near Snow Lake this week the community’s Mayor Clarence Fisher said the mine is leading to a new era in Snow Lake. He said all mining communities face the ups and downs of the industry but this mine opening ensures at least a generation of stability to Hudbay employees and all of the other members of the community. Fisher noted we all want to see this mine move forward and we all want to see Hudbay survive as a profitable company. He added we also need to work to make sure that this mine brings benefits to the community and the quality of life of all the employees who work there as economic development is about both profits and people.
Fisher said mines have brought people from across Canada and around the world to Snow Lake. He thanked Hudbay for their confidence in this region adding the people of the area are proud of their mines and their history.
