At the Flin Flon City Council Meeting Tuesday night Councilor Ken Pawlachuk reported on the Mining Convention he recently attended in Winnipeg. He says things were more positive than at last year’s convention due to improving metal prices including copper and zinc. He noted mines at Puffy Lake and Sherridon are in the final stages of development and First Nations are part of a development taking place at Oxford House.
Council agreed to apply to the New Building Canada Fund’s Small Communities Fund for financial assistance for local infrastructure improvement projects.
