Installment 8 of Kitimat Celebrates 60 Years

In continuation of 'Kitimat Celebrates 60 Years' historical stories, the District of Kitimat brings you the eighth installment, Kitimat’s Multi-Million Dollar Mine.

Excerpt: "Some people from afar have thought of Kitimat as a mining community. Who could blame these folks for assuming because of our smelter that we also had a mine. But we don’t mine here, or do we? Well yes. Believe it or not, Kitimat is a mining community and we have a large mine worth millions. Ours is an open pit, or should we say an open hillside mine. Ours is known as, the Sandhill."
