I think it is, that is the only smelter operating in Western Canada everything else is in Quebec

Thx

When I get some time I'll look into it in some detail.

From the little I did it looks like the dam ran into some indigenous peeps law suits.  

Anyway interesting stuff and doubtful we will see anymore big projects like that in the developed world to many regulation hoops to jump through

It's still there the worlds greenest AL smelter

The plan is to put a second tunnel to feed the hydro plant they have been working on it since 1989 due to come on line this year

Sounds like there were lots of hoops to jump through in the modern regulatory scheme 

@dresse25 didn't mean to hijack your thread 

Keep the photos coming we like old crawlers
