Swiss mining company Nyrstar’s Langlois mine 50 km northeast of Lebel-sur-Quevillon in Canada will cease production in December due to rock conditions having deteriorated to an extent to which the company considers it uneconomic. The company said that “The jobs of around 240 members of Nyrstar staff working at Langlois will be affected by this decision. The collective dismissal process is underway in cooperation with the local labor unions. Some workers will be offered positions at the company’s Myra Falls zinc-copper mine 90 km from Campbell River BC. Those who cannot find new positions with the company will be offered outplacement services.”

Equipment from Langlois will be moved to Nyrstar’s other two mines – Myra Falls and its three zinc mines in Tennessee.

The Langlois mine produced 24,000 tonnes on zinc in concentrate last year, according to Nyrstar’s website.
