WHAT TRIGGERED THE PANEL REVIEW PROCESS?

The decision to move the project to a Panel is based on two criteria: 

  1. The project might contribute significantly to cumulative adverse environmental or socio-economic effects in Yukon. This criterion is directly linked to the projects’ potential contribution to cumulative adverse effects on the Klaza Caribou Herd. 
  2. The project involves technology that is controversial in Yukon. This criterion is based on the proposed approach to tailings and waste management.
