AREVA will take until 2013 to respond to Information Requests

In late June of 2012, various parties submitted Information Requests to the Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB) related to AREVA’s proposed Kiggavik uranium mine near Baker Lake. Information Requests are questions, mostly addressed to AREVA, regarding their proposed uranium mine and Draft Environmental Impact Statement.

The NIRB initially scheduled three weeks for AREVA to respond to Information Requests. However, it did acknowledge that “more or less” time might be required for AREVA to respond.

On August 30, AREVA wrote to the Nunavut Impact Review Board, indicating that they will not be able to respond to information requests until January 31, 2013.

AREVA’s letter to the Nunavut Impact Review Board can be accessed here.
