Mount Milligan was one of the recipients of a MIne Safety Award recently.

The Thomspon Creek Metals mine under construction (and just for the Prince George media’s reference) is located in between the communities of Fort St. James and Mackenzie.

The mine received the John Ash award and has recently passed the landmark of 5 million hours without a lost time incident.

The Mine Safety Awards are given out by the Province of British Columbia and this year Minister of Mines and Petroleum Resources Bill Bennet handed out the awards in Revelstoke, B.C..

There are seven different awards to be won, and three categories.

Mount Milligan is currently on schedule to be in production later this year.
