WHAT TRIGGERED THE PANEL REVIEW PROCESS?
The decision to move the project to a Panel is based on two criteria:
- 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.
- The project involves technology that is controversial in Yukon. This criterion is based on the proposed approach to tailings and waste management.
