MANITOBA - Winnipeg-based HUDBAY MINERALS has completed an evaluation of the closure and reclamation plans for its Manitoba and Saskatchewan operations. The review was conducted by subsidiary Hudson Bay Mining & Smelting, which has mines and mills in Flin Flon and Snow Lake.
"I am pleased our closure and reclamation provisions have been confirmed," said Peter R. Jones, president & CEO of HudBay.
