67 Giant Mine Remediation Project $934 million
Between 1948 and 2004, operations at the Giant Mine site
grew to encompass roughly 900 hectares, including several
ponds and small lakes.
In 1999, the former operator entered receivership and the
Government of Canada, and the Government of Northwest
Territories became responsible for the site. Mining
operations continued until 2004. Several environmental
and site remediation needs were identified. This included
cleaning up the 237,000 tonnes of arsenic trioxide dust left
behind in underground chambers and 16 million tonnes of
tailings, open pits, debris, and site infrastructure.
Today, the project’s goals are to: minimize public health
and safety risks; minimize the release of contaminants
from the site to the surrounding environment; remediate
the site in a manner that instills public confidence; and
implement a remediation approach that is cost-effective
