As a reminder, last year the Jake McDonald Annual Mine Reclamation Award was presented to Seabridge Gold Inc. for its work at the past-producing Johnny Mountain mine. “Seabridge Gold has shown great leadership in its ongoing efforts to reclaim an inherited site with a high level of Indigenous nation support and involvement,“ says Tim Antill, outgoing chair of the TRCR and chair of the awards subcommittee. Between 2016 and 2022, Seabridge Gold’s subsidiary Snip Gold Corp. has worked to return disturbed lands and anthropogenic landforms to their original land use and capability of alpine tundra wildlife habitat. The environmental and reclamation activities completed at the Johnny Mountain Gold Mine are recognized because of the timely implementation of the site reclamation activities, and for the Company’s commitment to work with Indigenous partners to ensure all site environmental and reclamation activities, which are on the traditional territory of the Tahltan Nation, have both Indigenous input and approval.
