  • From Dave Schmidt to the Joint Review Panel re: Comments on the Marathon Palladium Project (see Reference #877 and #879)
  • Thank you for your response and I would like to direct this response for the information you provided in your email to the Panel Secretariat. I have reviewed all of the location links that you sent to me and the questions that I have are not in there anywhere. The information I was looking for from all of my questions (that are attached again) are not provided by this study then. So I would then request that Marathon PGM provide all of the information that I am requesting before this study is approved by the panel. So to be clear, all of the documents and information that I was asking to be directed to are missing from this study!! So I request that this work needs to be undertaken and my questions all need to be fully answered. Thanks, Dave Schmidt <personal information removed>

  • Marathon Palladium Project Sufficiency Review of Environmental Impact Statement Addendum Participant: David Schmidt Organization (if applicable): Do not currently belong to any organization. General Comments: Having worked almost 40 years in the mining industry with over 30 years living in the community and being employed at Barrick’s Hemlo mine. I am very hopeful that this project moves forward as planned as it will obviously be a large economic contributor to the community of Marathon, First Nation communities in the area, several of the surrounding district communities, as well as the whole regional district of Thunder Bay. I have been following this project’s final development for 10+ years and as a community resident I find it a bit challenging to find all the relevant study information that the public would want to review possibly due to the length of time that this project has been in development by several different project owners, managers and ...

  • Mapping the Cumulative Effects of Industrial Projects on Lake Superior's North Shore: A Map Reflecting the Cumulative Effects of Generation PGM's Marathon Palladium Project
  • The Citizens for Responsible Industry in Northwestern Ontario (CRINO) supports responsible industrial development and natural resource extraction activities within Northwestern Ontario. CRINO works to ensure that any projects being approved within the Lake Superior watershed are carefully assessed to ensure that there are no significant impacts to air quality, aquatic habitats, climate change, terrestrial habitats, and water quality along Lake Superior’s North Shore. CRINO developed this map to assist the Joint Review Panel in assessing how the Generation PGM Marathon Palladium Project may cumulatively affect Lake Superior’s North Shore. This map arose from concern that the mining proponent’s scoping of cumulative effects in the Environmental Impact Statement was too narrow, as it did not consider Lake Superior’s watershed as a whole. There are a variety of environmentally intensive projects that have been or will be operating throughout the ...
