PRINCE GEORGE - Mining is coming back to BC, after a short hiatus with sluggish commodity prices. That was the message to the Natural Resources forum.

"What we're engaging British Columbians about is the foundational nature of this industry in British Columbia," says Bryan Cox, the President & CEO of the Mining Association of BC. "We've been here since before we were a province."

Take copper. Between 18 and 49 pounds of copper in use in a conventional vehicle. That jumps to 85 pounds in a hybrid electric vehicle.

The Association is touring an electric vehicle to communities around the Lower Mainland to highlight the economic impacts of mining on those communities.
