City council to meet with Ajax mine reps

Mayor Peter Milobar is hoping a private meeting with officials from KGHM International may lead to a more public session with the proponents of the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine.

Milobar and three council members — Arjun Singh, Donovan Cavers and Nelly Dever, who were selected by random draw — are set to meet with Ajax representatives on Wednesday, Jan. 16, at about 4 p.m.

Milobar said he has tried to negotiate with KGHM to have representatives make a public presentation on mine proposal south of Aberdeen at a special council meeting.

Thus far, plans have always fallen through.

“We’ve tried various avenues to make that happen,” Milobar said.

“Maybe this is a springboard to make that happen again.

“But, if we’re not there, that lessens the odds.”

Milobar said there is no set agenda for the meeting, which will also include members of the Thompson-Nicola Regional District.
