The Pend Oreille mine, located in northeastern Washington State, USA, produced zinc and lead concentrates that were delivered to Teck’s Trail smelter 80 kilometres to the northwest, in British Columbia, Canada.
The operations were suspended in February 2009, and the mine was placed on care and maintenance.
A core group of employees continues to work at the site, maintaining the mine in anticipation of a restart in the future. All regulatory and environmental requirements are being met.
