YK community gathers for luncheon put on by Avalon, Chamber of Commerce
Yellowknife, N.W.T. - Avalon Rare Metal Inc. addressed members of the Yellowknife business community on Tuesday at a luncheon, and updated them on the progress of the Thor Lake Project.
Avalon's board of directors was in attendance along with over 80 members of the Yellowknife general public.
Avalon presented updates and allowed the community to ask questions.
The Yellowknife Chamber of Commerce hosted the luncheon, and executive director Tim Doyle explained why it is so important for them to hold events like this.
"Any type of mining project that you have, any time in the North or anywhere in the country, is going to be a big industrial project. It's also an expensive one and it's a costly project in terms of time as well, so they want to just update the the public and let them know how far along they are in development."
Doyle said it allows the Chamber to understand what is currently going on in the Yellowknife business community.
"It'sa great chance for us to get out there and network with the corporate community in Yellowknife, and the general area of the Northwest Territories overall. We want to see more projects like the Thor Lake Project."
Notable members from the city were in attendance, including mayor Gordon Van Tighem and city councilor Paul Falvo.
