Decision comes about 2 weeks after the Nunavut Impact Review Board recommended it go ahead
Oct 04, 2022
Baffinland Iron Mines Corp. can officially increase its production until the end of this year at the Mary River Mine in Nunavut’s Qikiqtaaluk region.
A letter from Dan Vandal, minister of Northern Affairs, dated Tuesday, said that after considering the proposal carefully with the other responsible ministers, he decided to accept the Nunavut Impact Review Board’s recommendation last month to approve the temporary production increase.
However, the company must follow through on mutually agreed upon commitments and proposed amendments to the project reached between Baffinland and the Qikiqtani Inuit Association to address specific environmental concerns, the letter said.
