As a reminder, last year the Jake McDonald Annual Mine Reclamation Award was presented to Centerra Gold and Chu Cho Environmental as co-recipients for their ongoing research into innovative techniques to solve reclamation questions at the Mount Milligan Mine, and their partnership with local communities. Mount Milligan’s environmental team, which includes Indigenous members from Nak’azdli Whut’en First Nation and McLeod Lake Indian Band, co-hosted tours of Centerra Gold’s Endako and Kemess sites for local Indigenous Nations to identify successful reclamation methods from these “living labs” to evaluate their application at the Mount Milligan Mine. The experiences and lessons learned during the reclamation of the Kemess and Endako mines were leveraged into the development and implementation of a Proof-of-Concept reclamation demonstration field trial.

The TRCR Committee hopes to see you in September for the 45th Annual Mine Reclamation Conference in Kimberley and virtually – Welcome all.
