Darnley Bay Resources Ltd. has started hiring local workers as it tries to revive the old Pine Point Mine east of Hay River, Northwest Territories.
The company, with headquarters in Toronto, purchased the project for $8 million in cash and shares last December.
Around the same time, it began consulting with Indigenous groups in the area, including the K'atl'odeeche First Nation near Hay River, the Deninu Kue First Nation near Fort Resolution and Metis groups in both communities.
Darnley Bay has also been in talks with the Town of Hay River.
