Diversified mining company Rio Tinto has marked the 70th anniversary of its BC Works operation, celebrating seven decades of significant contributions to the aluminium industry and the Kitimat community.

As the sole aluminium smelter operator in British Columbia, Rio Tinto has cemented its position as a cornerstone of the local economy and a leader in producing responsible high-quality aluminium.

"As we celebrate 70 years of operations, we reflect on our rich history and the strong relationships we've built with the community. For the occasion, we paused to contemplate our journey, acknowledging the transformations undergone along the way and our enduring legacy. As future generations are upon us, we remain dedicated to the production of high quality, responsible low-carbon aluminium, while continuing to build authentic relationships with communities, the union, and business partners, all of which play a significant role in the sustainability of our smelter,” said Rio Tinto BC Works general manager Simon Pascoe.

The 70th-anniversary celebration, held on June 1 at the Kitimat smelter site, attracted more than 1 800 attendees, including four generations of employees and retirees.
