In 2015, we mark 100 years since the discovery of the Flin Flon ore deposit in Northern Manitoba. The story of modern day Hudbay begins with the company’s long history in Flin Flon. This historic milestone requires proper recognition, which we will do through 2015.
This online museum is part of it, meant to take you back to the origins of the community and the company. It isn’t by any means an all-encompassing history of the deposit or the company or the city, although, on visiting, we hope you’ll appreciate how the success of one underpinned the success of the others.
Hudbay is a company that perseveres. Flin Flon is a community that endures. The determination of both is captured in the photographs and stories from the early days that you will see housed here.
We’re able to tell it because of the effort and care taken by the people of Flin Flon to preserve the chronicle of their past. We thank them for their partnership on this project and we hope you enjoy this look back in time.
David Garofalo, President and Chief Executive Officer
