RETHINKING MINE REMEDIATION: COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT IN MINE CLOSURE
Beckett, C. and A. Keeling.
2018 Northern Latitudes Mining Reclamation Workshop, September 10-13, Whitehorse and Carcross, Yukon. 16 slides, 2018

Can the current approach to mine remediation be changed from a focus on site containment to a broader emphasis on community remediation, reclamation, repair and reconciliation? The Giant Mine and Cyprus Anvil Mine cases illustrate the potential for community activism to shift remediation to include social issues such as environmental justice, reconciliation, and intergenerational equity. This presentation aims to contribute to a broader understanding of the social dimensions of toxic contamination and mine remediation and to the development of best practices for community engagement during mine closure.
