Despite its best efforts, the “most likely scenario” is that mining operations will cease in Flin Flon, Manitoba in 2021, an internal memo to employees at Hudbay Minerals (TSX: HBM; NYSE: HBM) reads.
While the company has been successful over the last few years in extending the life of its 777 mine from 2019 to 2021, the memo noted, its efforts to find new sources of ore from 777, “did not turn out as we hoped.”
The Winnipeg Free Press reported that up to 900 jobs will be eliminated.
