    RICHMOND HILL, ON, June 8 /CNW/ - Dynatec Corporation ("Dynatec" or the
"Company") announced today that the Company's shareholders (the
"Shareholders") have approved a Plan of Arrangement (the "Arrangement")
whereby Sherritt International Corporation ("Sherritt") will acquire all of
Dynatec's issued and outstanding common shares. The Arrangement was approved
by approximately 99% of the votes cast by Shareholders present in person or
represented by proxy at the special meeting called to consider the
    Under terms of the Arrangement and related steps, Shareholders will
receive for each of their Dynatec shares 0.19 of a Sherritt common share and
approximately 0.0635 of a common share of FNX Mining Company Inc., which are
currently owned by Dynatec. No Sherritt shares will be issued to U.S. persons.

sell such shares in the market and remit the proceeds (net of selling expenses
and applicable withholdings) to such holders. Court approval of the
Arrangement will be sought at a hearing scheduled for Tuesday, June 12, 2007

conditions set forth in the Arrangement are satisfied or waived, the
Arrangement is expected to be completed on or about June 14, 2007.
