Just days after finishing his term as BC’s minister of mines and energy, Bill Bennett has joined a Western Canadian mineral exploration company.
Eagles Plains Resources announced Thursday Bennett’s appointment as a director.
“Kootenay Bill” decided not to run in last month’s provincial election following 16 years of representing our region in Victoria.
Bennett served three stinks as our province’s minister of mines.
In a statement Eagle Plains said of Bennett “there are few people in Canada who have such a strong combined knowledge of government processes, of the mining industry and of First Nations”.
