The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has received a project description from AREVA to transport, receive and process high grade ore from McArthur River Mine at the McClean Lake Operation located in northern Saskatchewan.
No construction activities are associated with this project.
CNSC authorization is required for AREVA to receive and process high grade ore from McArthur River at the McClean Lake site. This requires an amendment to AREVA’s Uranium Mine Construction Licence, pursuant to subsection 24(2) of the Nuclear Safety and Control Act (NSCA).
Before the Commission may consider a decision on licensing under the NSCA regarding Cameco’s proposal, a screening level environmental assessment (EA) must be completed in compliance with the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. The purpose of an EA is to identify the possible environmental effects of a proposed project, and determine whether these effects can be mitigated before the project is allowed to proceed.
The CNSC maintains a public registry of documents related to its environmental assessments. Lists and copies of documents may be obtained upon request. For questions or information directly related to this environmental assessment, contact the CNSC.
