How Does the Rexton Project Benefit our Community?

Providing Economic Stimulus to the Region by Creating Year Round Jobs.

Increased Year Round Demand for Goods & Services.

Provide Opportunity for Improved Attendance & Funding at Schools.

Increased Support for Local Volunteer Emergency Services.

Involvement in Reclamation Plans to Create Habitat to Enrich the Area.

Ensuring Public Access to the
Non-Active Areas for Outdoor Recreation.

Direct & Indirect
Job Creation

This initial phase of the project is expected to create up to 50 direct jobs in local mining and transportation operations, plus up to 100 indirect jobs in the region. We believe every job should involve meaningful and challenging work.


We see these challenges as opportunities to demonstrate industry leadership by further improving our health and safety performance, minimizing our impact on the environment, and fostering meaningful relationships with communities.
