Frog Lake Waskonaman Hill Gravel Project (Amendment)

Waskonaman Askih Construction GP LTD. is proposing to amend the original project submission for the gravel pit to include additional areas. Aggregate was identified over a 15 ha area, the proponnt is proposing to amend their 3 ha pit to a 15 ha pit, including a 1.5 ha laydown area. The proposed project would consist of 5 Phases (3 ha in size). Each phase will extract approximately 100,000 m3 of aggregate, for a total of ~500,000 m3. Based on Alberta Transportation criteria (1 m3 = 1.632 tonnes), the project will mine ~816,000 tonnes of aggregate throughout the life of the project. Previous project details (i.e., laydown area, equipment used) remain the same. Each phase will be mined for an approximate 2-year period, and progressively reclaimed. In total, the project is anticipated to be mined and reclaimed within a 10-15 year time frame. 

Latest update

May 29, 2020 – Indigenous Services Canada issued its notice of determination and determined that the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
