:: Mining Industry to Benefit from Reopened NRCan Mill

National Mining Week 2005 began on a high note today with the reopening of Natural Resources Canada's (NRCan) experimental mill. National Mining Week, which takes place this year from May 9 to 15, underlines the importance of mining to Canadians. This year's theme is "Mining and Aboriginal Communities Working in Partnership."

"With these renovated facilities, NRCan can better support a healthy industry and help strengthen the partnership between mining companies and Aboriginal Canadians," said the Honourable R. John Efford, Minister of Natural Resources Canada. "A technologically advanced and sustainable mining industry that provides economic and social benefits to the people touched by resource development is a great way to ensure Aboriginal Canadians share in the country's prosperity."

The upgrades were accomplished through a series of improvements at a cost of approximately $7 million over four years. The state-of-the-art mill will now provide superior technological reliability and energy-efficient systems, as well as the capacity to service future industry needs. It will conduct industrial-scale research with the mining industry on a range of mineral processing and environmental research projects, including effluent treatment, mine reclamation, waste management and ecological toxicology.

The reopened mill will contribute to improve the quality of life in Canada by helping advance knowledge, innovation and technology in the natural resources sectors, which are a vital part of our economy and society. It also supports the Government of Canada's commitment to building on the strength of our country and our people.
