Thirty-three ton lift takes place at mine

!Slowly, consistently and with extreme caution, crane operator Grant Davies lifts a 33 tonne piece of conveyor which will feed rock to the largest cone crusher in western Canada. The lift is the biggest that has taken place on the Copper Mountain Mine site to date. Davies is accompanied by a crew of two in motorized lifts and four on the ground to assist with the lift process. - Lisa Carleton/Spotlight
