Mining: Sustaining Success

Regina: The Honourable Bronwyn Eyre, Minister of Energy & Resources along with Jessica Theriault, Chair of the Saskatchewan Mining Association launched ‘Mining Week in Saskatchewan’ today at the Saskatchewan Legislature. Mining Week in Saskatchewan runs from May 27 – June 2, 2018.

Saskatchewan is a global mining leader. While low commodity prices have continued to make for challenging operating environment, we are reminded that Saskatchewan is a good place to be operating mines. “Saskatchewan provides a low-risk environment because of both the great geological framework, and also the considered regulatory and policy frameworks. SMA member companies have made multibillion dollar investments in Saskatchewan over the past decade. And because of these investments, mining remains a key pillar of Saskatchewan’s economy.” said Jessica Theriault, Chair of Saskatchewan Mining Association.

As Canada transitions to a lower carbon economy, Saskatchewan products are among the most responsibly mined in the world. “Saskatchewan mining operations feed and fuel the world with their products, improving the quality of life around the world and at home. The world needs more Saskatchewan mineral products and we will continue to work with governments to develop a framework for sustained success in a globally competitive marketplace”, said Pam Schwann, SMA President.

During Mining Week, the Saskatchewan Mining Association will have dozens of events in communities across the province, culminating with the 50th Annual Emergency Response/Mine Rescue Skills Competition, Saturday, June 2nd at Mosaic Place and Moose Jaw Exhibition Grounds in Moose Jaw.
