Northern mining projects among 12 recipients of MMDF

The Government of Manitoba is helping to fund twelve projects through the Manitoba Mineral Development Fund, which includes a number of northern mining projects.


The announcement was made at the Community Futures North Central Development office in Thompson, which is receiving $30, 000 of the $1.6 million investment.


Manitoba Chamber of Commerce President Chuck Davidson, which manages the fund, says many of the projects are using the money to support mineral exploration and drill programs.


However, there are some that are focused on business renovation and start-up costs, with Davidson citing the Elm Street Redevelopment project in Snow Lake and winter weather testing in Thompson as examples.


Other recipients of the funding include Snow Lake Lithium, The Pas Community Development, the Northern Manitoba Sector Council, and the Sayisi Dene First Nation.
