Minto Metals Corp. announced that they have ceased all operations at the Minto Mine located within the Selkirk First Nation's Territory in central Yukon, Canada and that Yukon Government has now assumed care and control of the site. The Yukon government will prioritise those activities required to ensure environmental protection.

Minto is working closely and cooperatively with the Yukon government to ensure a smooth transition. The Company has invested a significant amount of money into improving the water treatment plants at the Minto Mine, doubling the mine's water treatment capacity. As a result both plants are currently operating at full capacity for spring freshet.
