As a past producing mine site and a potential future mine site, the Troilus property presents a unique set of circumstances for environmental stewardship. Diligent management of the tailings facility has demonstrated that rehabilitation is viable and achievable, while looking ahead we can incorporate new technology and thinking to ensure that we eliminate, minimize and mitigate impacts of our operations on the environment to maintain viability and diversity throughout the life cycle of the project and beyond.
We incorporate environmental considerations into all aspects our activities to identify, evaluate, and respond to watershed related risks and opportunities, implement measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and address the effects of climate change and integrate biodiversity conservation in our plans to prevent, manage and mitigate the impact of our operations on surrounding habitat.
Troilus has submitted an Environmental Impact Study to MELCC (Ministère de l’Environnement et de la Lutte contre les Changements Climatiques of Quebec) for the dewatering of the J4 and 87 pits at the Troilus site. Dewatering the pits is expected to take 1 to 2 years if approved and will allow us to access drilling targets that are currently underwater to continue exploration of the property.
