Project Description

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has received notice from COGEMA Resources Inc (COGEMA), seeking an amendment to an existing licence to authorize the mining activities at the McClean Lake Operation to include a new ore body known as Sue E.

The project proposed by COGEMA is to mine and mill ore reserves associated with the Sue E development. The Sue E will be mined as an open pit operation. The Sue E ore will be milled at the JEB mill and the tailings disposed at the JEB Tailings Management Facility (TMF). No changes are required to the mill, the TMF or to the existing water treatment facilities.

Before the Commission makes its decision on COGEMA’s proposal to mine the Sue E development, an environmental assessment must be completed in compliance with the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. The purpose of an environmental assessment is to identify the possible environmental effects of a proposed project, and to determine whether these effects can be mitigated before the project is allowed to proceed.
