Inco began exploration in northern Manitoba and discovered the Thompson orebody in 1956. The company built the world's first fully integrated sulphide nickel mining and processing complex at the Thompson orebody site. It officially began production in 1961. In November 2015, Vale announced that it would close its Manitoba smelting and refining operations in 2018, and remain a mining-and-milling facility only.
