The map pictured above shows the scope of the proposed Ajax Mine Project and should be of great concern to all Lac Le Jeune residents because it will most certainly have an impact on the local environment, residents’ health, wildlife habitat, traffic on the Lac Le Jeune Road, air, noise and light pollution, property values, etc. A public presentation and opportunity for a question & answer session was held Thursday, June 16 at Kamloops Towne Lodge and many residents of the region turned out to hear the presentation and make their concerns known at that meeting.
The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEA Agency) and the BC Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) are seeking comments from the public on the proposed Ajax Project and its potential effects to ensure that these issues are identified for consideration in the environmental assessment. A background document, containing information on the proposed Project, the requirements of the environmental assessment, and the proposed environmental components to be considered in the assessment, is available on the CEA Agency’s Web site at www.ceaa-acee.gc.ca. A description of the proposed Project is available on the EAO’s web site at
Lac Le Jeune residents still have an opportunity to voice their concerns. The public comment period will run from June 8, 2011 to July 11, 2011. The CEA Agency and EAO will accept public comments submitted by any of the following means:
