Ranges shown on the air quality isopleths do not include the lowest values that were modelled. For example, the NO2 24-hour contours in Figure CEAA 2-31-16A (Pg. 116 PDF) do not show values below 1 µg/m3. This can give the false impression that the project is not contributing contaminants of potential concern at any level, while in fact the ...

  • The proposed site for the Beaver Dam Mine Project is incredibly reckless and irresponsible from an environmental standpoint. The proximity to the West River watershed, as well as traditional Mi’Kma’ki lands, to this Open-Pit desecration of our environment is of immense concern. The long-term environmental impact on this site, for short-term gains, would be detrimental, regardless of the companies’ promised remediation plans.   For almost 20 years, the Nova Scotia Salmon Association has been working to restore the population of salmonid species in the West River of Sheet Harbour. This began with establishing North America’s first lime-doser, a Norwegian innovation that balances the pH of the waters. By introducing measured amounts of lime to the watershed, the accumulated effects of industrial expansion along the Eastern Seaboard from ...

  • As someone  who has worked as a habitat restoration practitioner with the Nova Scotia Salmon Association for more than twenty years, I have contributed to the NSSA’s response to the revised Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed Beaver Dam mine project.  I am in complete agreement, both professionally and personally, with the concerns articulated in our submission.   The proposed project, situated in the West River watershed, jeopardizes more than two decades of hard work, massive investment, and a pronounced, yet still fragile, recovery of Atlantic salmon –  a COSEWIC-assessed species at risk.   Approval of this project would signify a systemic disregard for wildlife conservation, scientific research, protection of biodiversity, and climate resilience. The proposed quarry is too close to the Killag River (Cameron Flowage),  and the spatial extent of the proposed work is too large, unnecessarily encroaching ...

  • Please accept this letter as confirmation that I oppose the proposed Beaver Dam Mine Project, as outlined in the revised Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). I fully support and echo the comments and concerns outlined by the Nova Scotia Salmon Association. In addition, here is a short list of some additional concerns to be emphasized: I am concerned that the certain impacts to West River Restoration Project run by the Nova Scotia Salmon Association and partners are not being adequately considered. Such certain impacts include: Warming of the Killag River and Tent Brook – both important coolwater streams Interruption of data continuity for the 17-year long research project. These data, such as water quality, electrofishing, temperature, and others will be rendered less valuable and less suited to long-term monitoring research.  Burying of forested lands that are the critical headwaters of the ...
