Community Notice: Soil Remediation Project

Press Release

Tuesday, April 16, 2024 – The Nipissing Miller Partnership has resumed work on the Soil Remediation Project after completing preliminary work in the fall of 2023.

The project is a tripartite partnership between Nipissing First Nation, Indigenous Services Canada, and the Ontario Ministry of Transportation to remove contaminated soil from the former Nova Beaucage Mine site in the community of Yellek, the MTO lands next to the Anishinabek Nation head office on Highway 17, and other areas across NFN.  Once the material is removed, the sites will be restored to a natural state.

For more details about the Soil Remediation Project, including information about the work sites on NFN and disposal site west of Sudbury, please read the full Community Notice here. A Community Open House / Information Session is being planned for the month of May to provide more information and answer questions from the community.
