Makita releases discussion paper on AREVA’s approach to socioeconomics

Nunavummiut Makitagunarningit has prepared a socioeconomic discussion paper to help inform Nunavummiut about the contents of the socioeconomic section of AREVA Resources Canada Inc.’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS)  for their proposed Kiggavik uranium mine.

This section of AREVA’s DEIS is over 500 pages long, and none of it is translated into Inuktitut. It’s not an easy document to read or make sense of.

We hope this discussion paper will help Nunavummiut better understand the report, ask questions, and determine whether the conclusions AREVA comes to about the impact of the proposed mine make sense to them.
