Alternatives North has been a major participant in the environmental review of the Giant Mine Remediation Project
An NWT Legislative Assembly on-line petition is urging the Government of the Northwest Territories to put a moratorium on horizontal hydraulic fracturing (fracking) until a review of the cumulative environmental, social and economic risks and benefits of the process is completed.
Follow this link to sign the petition.
A report has been produced on how to warn future generations of the hazards of arsenic at the Giant Mine site, and leave proper information on how to maintain the site. See the report and report summary.
