In 1927, Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting Co., Limited (HBMS) was founded at the Flin Flon orebody in northern Manitoba. A decade later, a Fortune magazine article captured the story of the talented group of prospectors, geologists, engineers and businessmen who overcame great challenges to create a successful new mining property in the Canadian wilderness. “The story of Hudson Bay,” Fortune stated, “is the story of heroes.” Much has changed over the past 85 years. Today, Hudbay is a Canadian integrated mining company with operations, development properties and exploration activities across the Americas principally focused on the discovery, production and marketing of base and precious metals.
