The province recognized mining operations for their health and safety accomplishments during the 53rd annual Mine Safety Awards banquet. The awards were presented to New Gold Inc.’s New Afton mine and Copper Mountain Mining Corporations’ Copper Mountain mine for having the lowest injury-frequency-rate during the previous calendar year. Last year, there was a decrease in the total estimated injury rate at BC mines and the number of days lost to injury.
