Environmental Assessment

Alloycorp initiated the environmental assessment process for Kitsault in April 2010. In March 2013, the Environmental Assessment Office ("EAO") of British Columbia referred the project to provincial Ministers for a decision on whether to issue an Environmental Assessment ("EA") certificate. An Assessment Report was prepared by the EAO, summarizing the proposed project and identifying potential environmental, economic, social, heritage health effects of the proposed project. An EA Certificate was issued by the provincial government in March 2013, following the conclusion that the Avanti Kitsault Project is not expected to result in any significant adverse effects based on the mitigation measures and conditions of the EA Certificate. Final EA approval was received by the Government of Canada in June 2014.
