Canadian Zinc Corporation (TSX:CZN) has reported continued progress on permitting the long-term, all-season road access to the Prairie Creek Mine in the Northwest Territories.
According to the release the company has now submitted its formal replies to the Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs to address all five information requests related to the implementation plans for various mitigation measures and proponent commitments contained in the Mackenzie Valley Review Board’s Report of Environmental Assessment on the proposed all season road to the mine.
As quoted in the press release:
Key concerns which Canadian Zinc and local Dene communities are addressing collaboratively include (a) sharing and incorporation of Dene knowledge and values into project design, (b) ensuring the Dene communities will be partners in environmental, wildlife and cultural monitoring of the all season road, and (c) addressing the Dene communities’ requests for support to participate in implementation of the measures recommended by the review board and the commitments made by Canadian Zinc in the environmental assessment process.
