Nunavik’s Raglan mine put into care and maintenance due to COVID-19 – Nunatsiaq News

Workers heading home “until further notice”

The Raglan mine in Nunavik has announced that it will mothball its operations and send nearly all its workers home, as it goes into care and maintenance due to COVID-19 concerns.
