The City of Thunder Bay has proclaimed tomorrow, June 17th, as Mining Day in Thunder Bay.

This is the first Mining Day to take place since 2019 due to Covid, Pam Coles is the Co-Chair of the event and says it is less about promoting companies and more so showing off the history and opportunities in the industry.

“To help the public understand what it is we do, and help kids understand the diverse range of careers they can have in this industry, because we’re going to need that in the future.”

2023 marks the 8th year of the event, everything kicks off at Marina Park this Saturday from 10 until 4 admission is free of charge.

Mayor Ken Boshcoff made the proclamation Thursday at Thunder Bay City Hall, he says the mining sector has done a lot for the city, and believes it will continue to do so.

“So many companies are coming here and investing, setting up offices bringing people here, highly paid professionals, and the discoveries that they are making of these minerals is the key to Northwestern Ontario’s future and its prosperity.

Boshcoff notes as the sector grows the city will grow as well, bringing other opportunities to Thunder Bay.
