In the Spring of 2017 the Ontario Geological Survey and SNC Lavalin (on behalf of MNDM) completed an assessment of available aggregate which determined that there was over 450,000 m3 of material at Round Lake Pit.
The Ministry of Northern Development and Mines (MNDM) has requested to purchase approximately 170,000 m3 (6800 Dump Truck Loads) of Aggregates from Atikameksheng Anishnawbek to use for the Long Lake Reclamation Project.
The sale of aggregates to MNDM, which is in line with the business ideas within the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek Community Plan, would also result in upgrades to the access road to allow the passage of haul trucks from the pit to the project site. In addition to the road upgrades, if Atikameksheng agrees to provide the aggregates, benefits include apart from the revenue generated, employment, training and business to Atikameksheng.
Snacks, refreshments and a door prize will be provided.
