Background: The Giant Mine located in Yellowknife, had been in operation under several owners for approximately 56 years, starting in 1948. In 1999, the owner, Royal Oak Mines, went into receivership. The Government of Canada has taken on the responsibility of the existing environmental liabilities on the property, including approximately 237,000 tonnes of arsenic trioxide, stored in underground chambers. The Giant site is currently under Care and Maintenance while the Project enters its Design phase before full remediation begins. The implementation phase ofthe remediation plan will have a number of individual components including, the freeze program, tailings cover, Baker Creek alignment, surface water management, building demolition, surface openings and pit closures, hazardous materials disposal and contaminated soils. Long term contracting opportunities for post-remediation activities will be required for the construction and operation of a new water treatment plant, maintenance of the freeze system, site security and monitoring. Post-remediation activities are expected for 100 years with 20 year review periods. The Government of Canada is committed to a fair, open, transparent and competitive procurement process.
