Project ObjectiveMVEIRB was reviewing the Federal Government proposed environmental mitigation plan for over 250,000mt of Arsenic Trioxide dust stored in underground chambers built within the Giant Mine perimeter, in vicinity of the City of Yellowknife. The selected alternative is to build and maintain at perpetuity a frozen block encompassing a shell around the chambers as well as the core of the chambers (freezing the contaminant).
