AREVA responds to technical comments for Kiggavik Impact Statement

On May 8, AREVA Resources submitted responses to technical comments on its Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). Technical comments were submitted in early April by a wide range of institutions, including Nunavummiut Makitagunarningit, the Baker Lake Hunters and Trappers Organization, the Beverly and Qamanirjuaq Caribou Management Board, Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated, and a variety of departments from the Government of Nunavut and the Federal Government of Canada.

The technical comments, as well as AREVA’s responses, can be accessed here.

The next step in the review of AREVA’s proposal is a technical meeting in Rankin Inlet (May 27-31). The technical meeting will be a meeting between AREVA, the various intervener groups, and the Nunavut Impact Review Board staff.

Following the technical meeting, outstanding issues will be discussed at a community roundtable and pre hearing conference in Baker Lake (June 4-6).
