At a glance
We are Raglan Mine, established in Nunavik since 1997 to mine one of the world’s purest series of nickel deposits.
We are part of Glencore, one of the world’s largest global diversified natural-resource companies.
We have four active underground mines and a concentrator. Because we are remotely located and off-grid with no access to public utilities and services, we have built the infrastructure normally found in a small municipality in order to support our operations, such as lodging, a water treatment plant, a power generating station and an airport. Roads kept open year-round link our mining complex to the warehouses and seaport facilities located at Deception Bay.
We have offices not only at our mine site in Nunavik, but also in the Inuit villages of Salluit and Kangiqsujuaq and in the more southern cities of Rouyn-Noranda, Laval, Québec City and Toronto. We have more than 1,285 employees, and more than 91% of them are shift workers on a rotating schedule.
We are a team, and together we face unique logistical challenges in realizing our vision: To be a world-class leader in health and safety prevention and operational efficiency, while respecting the interests of our Inuit partners.
