MiningWatch Canada Comments on EIS for Kemess North project

Jamie Kneen Communications and Outreach Coordinator responsible for: strategic research, social media, and public engagement; our Africa program, environmental assessment, and uranium mining.

Northgate Minerals' proposed Kemess North mine in northern BC is undergoing a joint federal-provincial environmental assessment process. The company proposes to use Duncan Lake (a six-kilometre long lake known as Amazay or Caribou Lake by the four affected First Nations) as a tailings dump ("Tailings Impoundment Area"). MiningWatch Canada has submitted the following comments on the company's Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to the Joint Panel assessing the project.

Includes an Economic Review by Pacific Analytics Inc. and an Aquatic Impacts Review by David Levy.

Note that the Comments and the Aquatic Impacts Review are corrected versions of the documents originally posted here.
