Mount Polley mine resumes operation

The Mount Polley mine operations, east of Williams Lake, are planned to resume following the downgrading of the evacuation orders for the City of Williams Lake and many surrounding areas to evacuation alerts.

To allow time for employees who had been evacuated to return to their homes, crews will be recalled to work effective July 31 with the intention of having the mine fully operational by August 2.

Mount Polley mine operations were suspended on July 15, following the issuance of the evacuation order.
