As reported earlier, Dehua also holds a minor stake in the nearby Murray River mine, an operation proposed by HD Mining International Limited, that's come under fire and is facing court action for its plans to hire the Chinese workers. Dehua had said that was causing investor concerns for its Wapiti River project, but announced last evening it was changing course, and that all efforts are being made to bring the project back into operation. It said this followed intensive talks with its investors to explain the court action it's currently facing, as well as other concerns.

The court challenge involves two unions pursuing a judicial review of the federal government's decision to grant HD Mining temporary foreign worker permits for 201 miners from China. HD Mining has fought back and has filed an appeal of a Federal Court ruling last week that granted the unions the review. Earlier reports confirmed that 13 of the miners had already arrived in Canada.
