Just got back from Rankin Inlet this morning. Shipping from Churchill will probably be construction and Mining equipment. Curently there are 3 mines in EA or construction. A new Gold mine 27 k outside of Rankin is about 2 years away from constrcution.
Mines fro Arviat, Baker Lake and Chestrfied Inlet are all on the boards.
Wish list is to build an All weather raod right up the west side of the bay.
Long term plans are for at least 8 mines in the region.
Also anounce last week is a 27mil upgrade to the Rankin Airport. The town has also seviced another large track of land for more housing.
“You have to understand, mental illness is like cholesterol. There is is good kind and the bad. Without the good kind- less flavor to life. Van Gogh, Beethoven, Edgar Allen Poe, Sylvia Plath, Pink Floyd (the early Piper at the Gates of Dawn line up), scientific breakthroughs, spiritual revolution, utopian visions, zany nationalism that kills millions- wait, that’s the bad kind." -Tim Dorsey
