Membership in Hudbay’s Quarter Century Club climbed to 3141 Friday night with the presentation of watches to 3 employees who have completed 25 years of continuous service with the Company. Safety awards were presented to 16 employees with 25 years, 25 with 30 years, 10 with 35 years, 2 with 40 years and one Allen Mardell with 45 years without a lost time accident. Award recipients were congratulated by President Alan Hair who noted next year will be the 90th anniversary of the commencement of operations here. He said unfortunately right now it looks like Flin Flon is going to go through a period of transition however they continue to have a strong base here in Manitoba with the Snow Lake operations and this gives them a very good platform to continue to explore in the region and hopefully find new ore bodies that perhaps will allow Flin Flon operations to prevail in the future. He added this has been a hugely prospective area and that’s what gives him confidence in the continuing success of Hudbay and the fact he still expects them to be celebrating many more anniversaries like tonight for many years to come.
Also recognized were 22 employees who retired over the past year.
