The annual Vale community open house is taking place tomorrow afternoon.
The event is set to run from 2:00pm until 8:00pm at the Heritage North Museum, and everyone is welcome to attend. There will be free admission to the museum, kid’s activities, bus tours of the Vale plant site and a display of the company’s annual community report.
Tara Ritchie, from Vale, spoke to Arctic Radio News and said that the date of the open house is coordinated every year with the launch of the report. She said that the report provides an update on environmental monitoring, exploration, health and safety, as well as community investment.
Ritchie added that when it comes to the bus tours of the site, the public was asked to register in advance but that there still might be spaces available.
If you’re interested in going on one of the tours, you are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org or drop by the open house to see if there is space available.
This will be the last time that public tours of the smelter and refinery are being offered.
