Rio Tinto BC Works donates $50,000 to Red Cross

Rio Tinto BC Works will donate $50,000 to the Canadian Red Cross BC Fires Appeal in response to the province wide state of emergency.

Rio Tinto general manager BC Works Gareth Manderson said “We are making this donation to support the relief efforts in the City of Prince George, which is hosting more than 7,000 evacuees from areas affected by the fires.

It is times like this when we witness the best in humanity as people come together in a crisis, from volunteering in evacuation centres to opening up their homes to those in need.”

The City of Prince George is one of Rio Tinto’s community partners in the Nechako Watershed.

Rio Tinto has been operating in British Columbia for over 60 years.

With our recent investment in the modernization of the Kitimat smelter, we have secured another 60 years of economy prosperity in northern British Columbia.

With industry leading technology and four generations of employee expertise, as well as our hydropower facility at Kemano and the Nechako Reservoir, the Kitimat smelter produces aluminium with one of the lowest carbon footprints in the world.
