Thompson, Manitoba, is located 740 kilometres north of Winnipeg and is named after John F. Thompson, chairman of International Nickel when a significant body of ore was discovered there in 1956.
Known as “the Hub of the North,” Thompson is home to our Manitoba Operations, consisting of the Thompson and Birchtree Mines along with the Thompson Mill, Thompson Smelter and Thompson Refinery. The operations employ about 1,500 people and cover some 250 acres.
