In a comprehensive and on-going program which has spanned over 15 years, Ensero is performing permitting, assessment, and remediation activities to achieve eventual site closure at all mine impacted land within the District. Over the past 15+ years, Ensero has completed baseline environmental monitoring programs, executed numerous studies, completed separate environmental and socio-economic assessments under the Yukon Environmental and Socio-economic Assessment Act, including development of the district wide Reclamation Plan, completed two Type B Water Use Licenses for Care and Maintenance Activities, and completed the district-wide Remediation Plan. Ensero has prepared and submitted hundreds of deliverables in support of the closure of this historic site.
