Dehua issued a statement that says it is stopping work at another proposed mine near Tumbler Ridge, the Wapiti River project, after investors raised concerns about the Murray River court challenge. The company's statement says investors have expressed reluctance to fund the project, and work will not resume unless new investors can be found.

However, over the weekend, HD Mining celebrated its increased investments in the community with a ribbon-cutting ceremony for $15 million in local housing investments. HD Mining said Sunday the money will be used to house workers from the Murray River coal mine.

HD Mining has defended bringing in 201 miners from China, a move that's being legally fought by two unions and has also prompted a federal government review of the entire temporary foreign worker program. HD Mining Chairman Penggui Yan says the company is committed to the community of Tumbler Ridge, and is honoured by the warm welcome it has received.
