Pacific Booker Minerals (TSXV:BKM) submitted a report to BC’s Environmental Assessment Office, the Ministry of Energy and Mines and the Ministry of Environment responding to the Mount Polley Independent Technical Review Board Panel Report Recommendations resulting from the tailings dam failure at Imperial Metals’ (TSX:III) Mount Polley Mine last year.
As quoted in the press release:
The report, prepared by Harvey McLeod of Klohn Crippen Berger Ltd., continues to support their opinion that the Project has been designed using Best Available Practices and can be safely constructed, operated, and closed to protect the environment. It also states that the design of the Morrison Tailings Storage Facility (“TSF”) uses Best Available Technologies that are appropriate for the site conditions.
The Company’s letter and the Klohn Crippen Berger report have been posted on the Company’s website at the following link: http://www.pacificbooker.com/reports.htm

Pacific Booker was asked by Doug Caul, Associate Deputy Minister, BC Environmental Assessment Office, to provide comments on the investigation and report in late February:
He asked that PBM provide him with any comments on the Report by March 20, 2015. He asked that PBM focus their comments on the potential implications of the recommendations of the Report to Morrison and effects relating to its proposed tailings management facility and that it is not necessary to reiterate the submissions made previously regarding the Morrison project.
Mr. Caul advised PBM that he had committed to providing that same opportunity to the Lake Babine Nation, the Gitxsan Treaty Society and the Gitanyow Hereditary Chiefs. He also stated “any materials provided by them will be forwarded to you, with a short opportunity to respond. The same opportunity to respond to your submissions will be provided to Lake Babine Nation, the Gitxsan Treaty Society and the Gitanyow Hereditary Chiefs.
