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.
