Baffinland receives successful conformity decision for Phase 2 expansion/ᐊᕙᑎᒧᑦ ᐅᓂᒃᑳᓕᐊᑦ ᐃᑭᐊᖅᑭᕕᒻᒨᖓᔪᖅ

On October 12, 2018, Baffinland received a successful conformity determination from the Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB) for its Addendum to the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS Addendum) for the Phase 2 expansion of the Mary River Mine. A copy of the full Phase 2 FEIS Addendum is available on the NIRB Public Registry. You can also review the Popular Summary of the application for Phase 2 here. This is a critical step in the development of the Mary River Mine, as Baffinland looks to adopt a stepped-approach to expand the mine. The Phase 2 expansion focuses on the construction and operation of a 110-km railway from the Mary River Mine to Milne Port, and expanding production from six million tonnes per year to 12 million tonnes per year. Coordinated NIRB-NWB Review Process The NIRB’s acceptance of the FEIS Addendum has initiated the public technical review phase, which will include a set of technical meetings in Iqaluit March 12-15, 2019. These meetings will be jointly held with the Nunavut Water Board (NWB) as part of a partially coordinated review process to amend the Type A Water License. Following the technical review, a final review period will take place and conclude with a set of separate Public Hearings by the NIRB and NWB, and subsequent reports being issued to the Minister.

Community Engagement Over the next few months Baffinland and other regulators will be holding community information sessions in affected communities, providing opportunities for residents to ask important questions about the Phase 2 project and provide their input for consideration. Baffinland also has more involved engagement activities planned to discuss priority topics with a view to enhancing proposed monitoring and management plans. Baffinland is planning to host its first community tour specific to the Phase 2 review process between November 5-9, 2018 in all five North Baffin communities.
