Xstrata Zinc Canada said the Brunswick mine will close no later than March 2013 after starting operations in 1964.
Brunswick has less than 3 million tons of ore, which is expected to take about a year to mine, Xstrata said in a website statement. The mine had previously been scheduled to close in 2010 and has produced more than 133 million tons of ore.
