Knight Piésold Presents at the Sudbury Mining and the Environment 2015 International Conference

June 29, 2015, North Bay, ON, Canada – Two Knight Piésold staff from the North Bay office presented at the Sudbury Mining and the Environment 2015 International Conference on June 22. Senior Environmental Scientist Richard Cook shared his experience in conducting a traditional knowledge study to support environmental baseline studies and decision making on project alternatives for the Mary River Project, a proposed iron ore mine in the Qikiqtani Region of Nunavut. And, Project Scientist Jason Plamondon provided guidance on Canadian mine closure legislation and tools for closure planning on projects in different jurisdictions.

Knight Piésold has historically had a strong presence at this conference, as Sudbury is less than two hours away from the North Bay office. A mining camp started in Sudbury in the 1880s, and research and reclamation activities over the past several decades have transformed the Sudbury area from a black-stained bedrock wasteland into a rehabilitation showcase. Since 1995, over 2,000 professionals have attended the conference occurring every five years to address mine, land and waterways rehabilitation, and related environmental protection issues. This year’s conference took place at Laurentian University on June 20-25.
