Local Activities

Nahanni Butte Flood Relief Fund

On June 12, 2012, the community of Nahanni Butte was flooded by local rivers which resulted in the Nahanni residents having to be relocated approximately 140 kilometres away to Fort Simpson, NT. The community is a neighbour of the Prairie Creek Mine and Canadian Zinc provided on-the-ground support with our Fort Simpson Office.  In addition, the Company partnered with CIBC to create the Nahanni Butte Flood Relief Fund to provide the Nahanni community some financial support for their clean-up and repair needs.

The tournament takes place over two days in early August and provides a great opportunity for local residence to interact with senior NZC Management.
