IndustryEnvironmental Rehabilitation, Government
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).
Project ScopeRiskope was asked to review the project and risk assessment prepared by the Federal Government (the Proponent), discuss assumptions, methodologies and results; participate in public hearings and support the conclusions of MVEIRB.
ResultRiskope helped the MVEIRB to forge an independent opinion on the project, understand the differences between "best practices" and "common practices" in the risk managment arena.
