The Canadian federal government has passed a regulatory amendment authorising project developer Seabridge Gold to use fish-bearing streams for use in the tailings management facility (TMF) for its Kerr-Sulphurets-Mitchell (KSM), in north-western British Columbia.
The company announced on Tuesday that the federal government has issued a regulatory amendment to Schedule 2 of the Metal Mining Effluent Regulations (MMER) under the Fisheries Act for KSM’s TMF, subject to strict bonding and fishery habit compensation requirements that were identified during the three-year amendment review process.
