Victor Diamond Mine Undergoes Environmental Assessment
MiningWatch has submitted comments on the Victor Diamond Mine Environmental Assessment. This huge project, on the traditional territory of Attawapiskat First Nation, is being proposed by DeBeers. It may drain and dry out over 1950 square kilometres of muskeg, will dramatically affect flows an important fish-bearing river, and will have untold effects on the social, cultural and economic life of the region.
Comments were also submitted by Mushkegowuk Tribal Council and Nishnawbe Aski Nation as well as the most of the affected communities.
