2. Definition of requirement

Giant Mine is a former underground gold mine, covering 949 hectares within the city limits of the City of Yellowknife, NWT. The mine operated nearly continuously from 1948 until its closure in July 1999, leaving approximately 237,000 tonnes of arsenic trioxide stored underground, as well as various buildings and surface areas contaminated with arsenic. As a result of the insolvency of Royal Oak Mines Incorporated (Inc), the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development (DIAND) established the Giant Mine Remediation Project (GMRP) Team to assist in the management of Canada’s responsibilities at the Giant Mine property. The remediation and closure (the Project) of the Giant Mine is co-managed by the Government of Canada (GoC), through DIAND, and the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) as co-proponents. Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC - formerly Public Works and Government Services Canada) also plays an integral role by providing procurement and project management services to the Project.

The current Remediation Plan for Giant Mine calls for in situ storage of arsenic trioxide waste in the Mine’s underground chambers, through the application of advanced freezing techniques.

The Project is supported by the Giant Mine Advisory Committee (GMAC), representing the Yellowknives Dene First Nation (YKDFN), who provide the Project Team with continued advice and input on the remediation plan, and by the Giant Mine Working Group, comprised of Project stakeholders and key participants, including: the City of Yellowknife; the YKDFN,; and the North Slave Métis Alliance (NSMA), the Giant Mine Community Alliance, and Alternatives North. Other critical participants in the Project include regulatory bodies and other government departments and non-governmental organizations.

In 2013 the Project completed an Environmental Assessment (EA) and was approved in 2014 subject to the implementation of 26 additional measures to mitigate significant adverse impacts on the environment, including cumulative impacts and to address public concerns.

Presently, the GMRP is in the regulatory approvals phase (anticipated to be completed between 2015-2020), that is required in advance of the commencement of full remediation. The Project Team is in the process of advancing the Closure and Reclamation Plan from the conceptual design level to the preliminary and detailed design levels. The GMRP Team has also been working on addressing a number of the EA measures. Several of these measures require significant public and stakeholder engagement to complete.

7. Justification for the Pre-Identified Supplier

Established in 1974, and with an established practice in the NWT since 1999, SRK Consulting’s practice includes specialization in underground mine design, planning and engineering; mine closure and reclamation; and remediation of contaminated sites; including expertise in both surface and underground design techniques, rock mechanics, and pit slope stability. SRK Consulting is also the recognized industry leader in the application of freeze techniques to arsenic trioxide waste for mine reclamation or closure applications.

This includes extensive experience on mine sites North of 60° in a permafrost environment, and in the context of the Giant Mine Remediation Plan. SRK Consulting has, pursuant to competitive contracting processes, been the lead Technical Advisor to the GMRP, since 2000, and has over 15 years of demonstrated experience in this area, including:

  • Evaluation of management options for the approximately 237,000 tonnes of highly toxic arsenic trioxide dust stored underground at Giant Mine and recommendation of the most appropriate arsenic dust management alternative. This included evaluation of fifty six (56) possible technologies to manage the arsenic trioxide dust that were subsequently down to twelve (12) of the most viable alternatives, each of which were evaluated in detail;
  • Presentation of its report on management options for arsenic trioxide dust storage at a public workshop and recommendation that two of the twelve alternatives be given further consideration. Based on public input from a series of public meetings and workshops, and taking into account the Technical Advisor’s recommendation and further comments and recommendations from the Independent Peer Review Panel (IPRP), DIAND decided to proceed with in-situ freezing as the arsenic management alternative;
  • Completion of numerous baseline studies related to arsenic contamination and other environmental aspects of the site both underground and on surface. These studies were undertaken to provide a clear understanding of the site condition in order to formulate an integrated underground and surface Remediation Plan. Numerous aspects of the site were studied including arsenic chamber investigations and crown pillar rock mechanics, arsenic trioxide dust properties, exploration and development of bulkhead stabilization options, continuation of the freeze design, mine water and arsenic load balance, groundwater monitoring, air quality monitoring, drilling and sampling of the calcine pond, historic tailings deposits, and both polishing and settling ponds;
  • Development of a comprehensive site data base that incorporated multi-parameter site data.
  • Development of a comprehensive site Remediation Plan for Giant Mine that addresses all known underground and surface elements on the site requiring remediation. SRK Consulting also included in the Remediation Plan an, conceptual engineering design, identification of contingency measures, a monitoring plan and an implementation schedule which include cost estimates; and
  • Oversight of successful completion of a full-scale test of the Project’s Remediation Plan’s methods to isolate arsenic dust through ground freezing.
  • Development of an extensive Design Basis Report (DBR) which summarizes the result of the full-scale test and recommendations for further design of the freeze program

In addition to the above, SRK Consulting has over 15 years in depth experience and expertise in the operating environment and remediation requirements of Giant Mine. In its role as lead Technical Advisor, SRK Consulting has provided technical assistance and advice on the various care and maintenance, risk assessment and risk mitigation activities completed at the Giant Mine site. This has included completion of numerous and varied in-depth scientific mine studies (both on surface and underground) at the Giant Mine site in order to determine the baseline environmental and geo-technical conditions, particularly in the areas of the arsenic chambers. As a result of completing these studies, SRK Consulting has become intimately familiar with, and have developed an extensive understanding of, the current mine situation including all aspects of the conditions relating to the arsenic trioxide chambers and the water management and treatment systems. SRK Consulting’s ready access to technical information/documentation (i.e. studies and research which they have undertaken over the past several years and three dimensional mine models and hydrogeological models of the Giant Mine which they have developed and hold proprietary rights to) and their in-depth knowledge of current technical site information relative to the GMRP (i.e. steps being taken to manage the underground arsenic trioxide at the Giant Mine) will form an integral part of, and are essential to the successful engagement with Project stakeholders and participants, as well as defense and approval of the Remediation Plan for the Giant Mine site through the regulatory approval process.

SRK Consulting has demonstrated extensive experience and applied understanding of the concerns, requirements, and objectives of the Project stakeholders, and has an established track record of working collaboratively with the City of Yellowknife; the YKDFN; the NSMA; the Giant Mine Community Alliance, and Alternatives North, in community consultation and engagement.

Over the past three (3) years, this has included participation as a lead technical advisor in numerous public meetings and consultation sessions with Project stakeholders on the issues, options, risks and mitigating measures for the management of arsenic trioxide waste underground at the site via the freeze method; including leading two (2) stakeholder engagement sessions with the YKDFN.

SRK Consulting has also been a lead contributor in the collaborative process for Surface Design Engagement (SDE) undertaken with Project stakeholders in 2015 and 2016. The SDE is a critical step and input will be carefully considered by the Project Team in finalizing the surface remediation plan and developing the updated project description that will be submitted to the MVLWB for licensing. SRK Consulting has provided technical expertise in initial communications and design of the SDE sessions; and has participated as a technical advisor in the first six (6) steps of the SDE process to support informed review and decision-making by Project stakeholders. This has included:

  • Participation in a number of sessions for information sharing that were successful at familiarizing engagement groups with the steps to identify, define, develop and review options for various aspects of the surface design plan;
  • Provision of technical advice in Options Definition workshops with approximately 100 participants, wherein Project stakeholders were able to share ideas, discuss their vision for the site, and identify a range of options for the mine’s surface objective identification;
  • Working with YKDFN and the Giant Mine Working Group, providing technical input, to identify site-wide options and develop each option into a conceptual plan;
  • Participation as a technical advisor in workshops with Project stakeholders to review the risks associated with each Option with a view to determine how these options may be improved.
  • Facilitation and lead in the Evaluation Workshop with approximately 80 participants, wherein Project stakeholders were able to evaluate surface options against objectives and communicate their vision for the site.

SRK Consulting has demonstrated having extensive experience and applied understanding of the requirements of the NWT regulatory regime, including demonstrated experience in addressing the requirements of the Mackenzie Valley Environmental Impact Review Board (MVEIRB) and the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board (MVLWB), as demonstrated through:

  • Previous work experience in the NWT in support of both mine remediation and private sector mining projects, including work with the GNWT, the Yellowknives Dene First Nation, the City of Yellowknife and other community stakeholders;
  • Acting as Technical Advisor to the Environmental Assessment (EA) process for the GMRP, including development of written submissions to the MVEIRB and MVLWB;
  • Participation through the provision of technical expertise on the Remediation Plan, and in particular on the management of arsenic trioxide waste at the site, in the public hearings of the EA process pursuant to the MVRMA in 2012-2013; and
  • Responding to information requests from the MVEIRB and MVLWB as part of the EA process.

The design for creating the frozen shell or blocks of underground stored arsenic trioxide was found, in the MVEIRB’s 2013 report of the Project’s EA process to be sound from an engineering perspective for the 100-year Project lifespan.

SRK Consulting is an independent, international consulting practice, owned independently by its employees; with independence from the Project’s Design Engineer, environmental engineering advisors, and the Project’s Independent Peer Review Panel.

To DIAND’s knowledge, there are no other suppliers available that possess the required experience and technical expertise in freeze optimization and arsenic trioxide waste management in remediation applications on underground mines in a permafrost environment North of 60°; or a sufficient level of understanding and in-depth knowledge of the Giant Mine site, the overall Project requirements and objectives, the Project’s Remediation Plan, regulatory body and Project stakeholder and public concerns relative to the Site and its proposed Remediation Plan; to meet DIAND’s current and immediate needs.
