Limited Partnership With Lower Nicola Indian Band
Project: Teck Highland Valley Copper Crushing and Crusher Backstop Replacement

  • In 2016, LNB entered into a limited partnership with Lower Nicola Indian Band, forming Lower Nicola Site Services (LNSS)
  • LNSS was then contracted for 3 years by HVC to crush approximately 830,000 tonnes of road crush and 65,000 tonnes of stemming crush per year
  • LNSS was further contracted to build the concrete crusher backstop replacement
    – In order to minimize mine operations downtime, the crusher backstop had to be replaced in a short period of time
  • The crushing project is staffed 75 percent by Lower Nicola Indian Band members
  • To date, 6 months steady state operation without a recordable incident
