Nunatsiavut minister reacts to mining company abandoning claim
Glen Sheppard The Nunatsiavut Government says it’s great news for the George River Caribou. Altius Minerals — in partnership with Cliffs Natural Resources — has abandoned mineral claims in Northern Labrador. A spokesperson for Altius said the claim was smack-dab in the middle of a caribou calving ground, and that was a major factor in the decision to back away from the area. Glen Sheppard couldn’t be happier. He’s Nunatsiavut’s minister of lands and natural resources, and he spoke to CBC’s Bailey White.
