Ajax Mine

Post by admin » Fri Jan 06, 2012 12:19 am

We've just learned of the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine in an area south of the Aberdeen neighbourhood. It sounds like the community is quite divided on whether it's a good thing or not.

More information in the Kamloops news ... federal Environment Minister Peter Kent said he will not be ordering a federal panel review of the project. He said based on the expertise of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) and information available on the project, the mine would not result in environmental impact provided the appropriate application of mitigation strategies are implemented.

Kent said his decision could change if new information comes to light during the environmental process, noting the CEAA is still awaiting information regarding the use of explosives and the effect the mine might have on fish habitat.
