Faro Mine: Monthly Archives - March 2007
Independent Peer Review Completed
March 29, 2007
Over the fall and winter of 2006, an Independent Peer Review Panel (IPRP) was asked to give an independent technical assessment of the 12 "example" alternatives for closure of the Faro mine site that were presented to the commuity in the Spring of 2006. The IPRP was made up of a group of nine experts from a variety of techical fields.
The IPRP presented its report at a March meeting in Vancouver with representatives from governments and communities.
The IPRP report concluded that the technical studies and the range of alternatives provide enough information to move into the process to develop a closure and remediation plan for the Faro Mine site. These findings echoed much of the feedback heard from earlier community meetings.
