The Yukon's abandoned Faro mine is a square-kilometre moonscape, where deep pits filled with millions of tonnes of toxic waste are contained by substandard dams, and mountains of rubble tower Author: Justin Giovannetti.

They have been collaborating on the development of a remediation plan for the Faro mine site. Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada’s Northern Contaminated Sites Program is leading the development and finalization of the remediation plan.

To learn more, visit INAC’s Northern Contaminated Sites Program. Below is a poster that they have. Community Development is broadly defined as the practice of improving communities. Community development is often used when discussing community economic development, the process of bringing more business and investment into a community.

But community development can also refer to any project or program that works to improve yourFile Size: KB. The Northern Abandoned Mine Reclamation Program will start in – in Faro, United Keno Hill, Mount Nansen, Ketza River and Clinton Creek mines in the Yukon.

In the Northwest Territories the program will address the Giant, Cantung and Great Bear Lake mines, with the latter consisting of multiple smaller sites in close proximity to each. The Faro Mine complex, with a footprint of over 25 km 2, consists of three distinct areas: the Faro Mine area (incorporating the Faro pit, mill, and associated buildings), the Rose Creek tailings impoundment situated in Rose Creek Valley, and the Vangorda Plateau (incorporating the.

The Faro Mine site is 25 sq. km, an area that is roughly the size of the City of Victoria in British Columbia. Processing the ore at the mine left behind 70 million tonnes of tailings and million tonnes of waste rock, which have the potential to leach heavy metals and acid into the surrounding land and water.

Development If the mineral ore exploration phase proves that proves that there is a large enough mineral ore deposit, of sufficient grade, then the project proponent may begin to plan for the development of the mine.

This phase of the mining project has several distinct components. abandoned mines and tailings Some mining projects. When the owners of the Faro Mine declared bankruptcy inthe company left behind more than million tonnes of waste rock and 70 million tonnes of tailings. Photo: Matt Jacques / The Narwhal After nearly 20 years of maintenance and remediation planning, more than $ million has been spent via the Federal Contaminated Sites Action Plan.

Faro mine remediation plans take shape. After nearly two decades of caring for the abandoned Faro mine site, the federal and territorial governments are getting closer to coming up with a remediation plan. Ashley Joannou; Jun. 12, p.m.

The book offers cost-effective strategies and approaches for contaminated sites, along with remediation and rehabilitation methods for contaminated soils and waste dumps.

It is an essential resource for students and academics, but is also ideal for applied professionals in environmental geology, mineral geologists, biotechnologists and. Another option is to cover the tailings with soil and divert Faro Creek over top, or cover some tailings with soil while moving the rest.

At the Vangorda-Grum area, located about 14 kilometres down a makeshift road from the Faro minesite, the waste rock could be moved into the Vangorda pit or it could be covered where it sits. In the development of the design concepts, it is important to consider the impacts that the tailings management plan may have on aspects of the mining operation outside of the TSF.

Modern practice, for example, requires that there is an integration of water management issues relating to tailings management with water management elsewhere on the.

The Treasury Board of Canada’s annual report revealed that no actual remediation has occurred at the Faro Mine in Yukon over the past decade although considerable sums of money have been spent on studying and planning.
