More jobs will be available locally as Greenstone Gold works towards opening its Hardrock Gold mine.
City mining spokesperson John Mason tells us they will be looking for workers in Thunder Bay to help them build and operate the mine in the coming years.
“The next 2 years are critical as the company works toward bringing Hardrock work to production. So there are a few years of work left.”
The mine will be off the ground in the next two years.
“That company is not only looking at Highway 11 corridor and Greenstone area, and Indigenous communities there to provide workforce and supply chain, but it’s looking to Thunder Bay in terms of our horsepower and our ability to help operate and build a mine.”
You can find out more on the project at an information session at the Valhalla Inn from 5 to 7 PM tonight.
“Thunder Bay having the critical workforce that can staff the key jobs for the mine and mill as well. I’d also say Thunder Bay demonstrates the leadership and the opportunity for support, I think, at all levels of government to indicate this is an important project in northwestern Ontario.”
