Mining

Mining is currently, and always has been, Snow Lake's major industry Two separate mining ventures have operated in the community over the past 40 years TVX/Kinross/High River operated the New Britannia Mine, which closed in January 2005, and HudBay Minerals, which operated 12 area mines They were/are Lalor Mine, Chisel Lake, Stall Lake, Osborne Lake, Dickstone, Anderson Lake, Ghost Lake, Lost Lake, Spruce Point, Rod Mine, Photo Lake, and Chisel North

In recent years, the New Britannia Mine employed the majority of the town's population; however, its January 2005 closure caused a sudden drop in population HudBay Minerals is now the community's major employer and has recently announced the discovery of a new world-class gold-zinc property, Lalor Lake
