Nickel miner Raglan, a Glencore company, has officially inaugurated the Anuri mine from its Sivumut mining project, which has been under development for more than ten years.

Anuri, which is one of the biggest mining investments in Quebec in the last decade, will lengthen the Raglan mine’s life of operationsfor at least another 20 years.

“We expect that our miningactivities, initially forecast to last 25 years, will be significantly extended thanks to the Anuri mine. This is a huge success for our 1 400 employees, our Inuit partners and our businesspartners,” says VP Pierre Barette.

Raglan employees helped find a name for the new mine. The final choice, Anuri, means ‘wind’ in Inuktitut.

Projects, geology and explorationdirector Jean-Francois Verret says the project was a challenge on every level, particularly given the pandemic, the Arctic climate and numerous logistical challenges.

“Nevertheless, we completed the Sivumut project ahead of schedule, under budget and with everyone’s safety at the heart of every step.”
