Mine Closures and the NL Mining Industry
When Teck Resources announced it will close Duck Pond mine early next year, it was disappointing. When we found out last week Wabush Mines will be idled immediately, it was shocking. The mining industry is a valuable supporter of the province's economy. We wanted to know what the latest closures mean and what we can expect from mineral resources in the immediate future.
