Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) is seeking comments from the public and Indigenous nations on a proposed authorization under the Metal and Diamond Mining Effluent Regulations (MDMER). The authorization would allow for the disposal of mine waste in water bodies frequented by fish at the Red Lake operation mine. This requires an amendment to Schedule 2 of the MDMER to list these water bodies as “Tailings Impoundment Areas”.
