Mining for Greener Technologies

Social & Environmental Conditions

Environmental Impact 

The conclusion of this Environmental Study is that if the mitigating measures proposed in the EIA report are implemented and the mining activities are carried out in accordance to good environmental practice then the significance of the impacts on the environment will be low. No significant contamination by toxic materials or other pollutants is expected to take place. Dust dispersal will be small and no local and/or key animals (such as White-tailed eagle or Arctic char) or plants will decline or be displaced because of the mine project.

Social Impact

The conclusion of the Social Impact Study indicates that overall mining activities will have little negative impact on local use of natural resources. The findings and conclusions of the Local Use study were confirmed during the interviews and focus groups research activities performed by the SIA team.
