Why mining matters

Ajax: Creating Prosperity for British Columbia

Responsible mining generates a lot more than just good, family-sustaining jobs. It creates lasting prosperity for communities.

Ajax Will Drive Economic Development in BC

Mining is a wealth generator for local communities and the whole of BC, expanding small businesses, creating high paying mining and non-mining jobs, and producing substantial tax revenue that strengthens our schools, social programs, and infrastructure.

1,500 New Full-Time Jobs in BC, and 500 More Across Canada

The Ajax Project is a proposed copper and gold mine located near the City of Kamloops that’s been designed to respect the local community and environment while maximizing benefits. On its own, Ajax will generate $6.9 billion in economic activity for the region and BC over the life of the project.

Safe, Environmentally Friendly and Prosperous

The Ajax Project recently submitted an Application/Environmental Impact Statement, which scientifically examined all potential project effects and provided detailed plans for eliminating or mitigating them.
