Nicola Mining has obtained a rock quarry permit and begun supplying materials to the Ministry of Transport for highway infrastructure repairs.


Collaborating with LNSS on our rock quarry project offers more than just a new source of revenue; it underscores our commitment to community relations and enables local benefits from our initiatives. The material from our quarry contributed significantly to the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure (MOTI) in repairing the Trans-Canada Highway, Highways 99, 7, 3, 5, and 8, all affected by the November 2021 flooding events under the Interior Region Flood Repairs initiative.
