The Mining Commissioner's decision "does jeopardize the viability of the project going forward unless it can be resolved," Jason Aagenes, director of environmental affairs for Cliffs, told Wawatay News.

"From there, a winter road trail was used to access Marten Falls, but it wasn't generally accessible to members of the community because it was pretty rough," said Jason Aagenes, Cliffs' director of environmental affairs.
"The winter season for the trail was very short and it was uncertain because it was constructed with very basic techniques and minimal equipment." Supplies were hauled in by a skidder. "The whole idea of partnering with Marten Falls was to improve access to the community by building a road that would be safer, straighter and wider," said Aagenes. "Last winter was the first time that a transport truck was able to drive into the community. There were a number of large loads of building supplies, food and diesel fuel that were brought in." Community members were also able to drive their own personal vehicles in and out of the community. "Typically, that didn't happen on the old winter trail," said Aagenes. Winter roads can provide access to remote communities for anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, depending on the weather and the construction techniques used to build the road. Ice bridges over rivers and streams are generally the weak link, explained Aagenes. "You have to start establishing the ice bridges early. You have to pack the snow, continuously grade it to push the frost deeper and flood the crossings to build up the ice." It's also necessary to drill through the ice to test for thickness. Feedback from the community was very positive, said Aagenes.

Jason Aagenes (centre), director of environmental affairs for ferroalloys with Cliffs Natural Resources, speaks to visitors during a public open house in Capreol on Oct. 25. The company is currently undertaking an environmental assessment on its plan for the development of a chromite mine in the Ring of Fire area of the James Bay Lowlands in Northern Ontario. Jason Aagenes, Cliffs' director of environmental affairs for ferroalloys, said all four components of the project-the mine, concentrator, transportation corridor and ferrochrome processing facility-are being subject to the combined provincial and federal environmental assessment, which is moving forward as an integrated process. "The purpose of the environmental assessment is to take a look at the existing environment-and we've been conducting baseline monitoring for a couple of years now-then take a look at the project as it's designed and you estimate any impacts on the existing environment," Aagenes said. The EA studies impacts to the human element, including First Nations land use, health and safety and socioeconomic factors; the physical element (land, air, water); and the biological element (fish, wildlife, vegetation, insect life). The project will then be redesigned to eliminate, mitigate or otherwise reduce any anticipated negative impacts, Aagenes added. A number of the project's components are still being determined, including the mine site layout, a water source, a method for discharge of treated affluent, and mine closure and decommissioning. Though early in the EA process, Aagenes said Cliffs has been consulting with federal and provincial agencies for more than two years to develop this amalgamated approach. Cliffs volunteered to undergo the most rigorous type of provincial EA, an individual assessment, even though it wasn't required, he said. "It's consistent with our interest in having a robust environmental assessment-everything is adequately covered-but it also matches up very well with the federal comprehensive study," Aagenes said. "The first time they're opened will be inside the furnace building here in Capreol," Aagenes said. The containers will be opened, unloaded, closed and shipped back to the mine site for reuse. Aagenes said community consultation is not only important to inform the design of the project, but it's also a requirement of the EA process. Community and government consultation will continue throughout the development process, he said. Integral to that is input from the seven nearby First Nations, including Wahnapitae First Nation, located just outside of Sudbury, which is assisting Cliffs with its environmental review process. "We rely on their expertise and knowledge of the area to help inform the environmental assessment," Aagenes said. Once the EA is submitted for government assessment, the review period lasts an average of 62 weeks, but can start and stop depending on the public consultation periods mixed in throughout that review period, Aagenes said. The idea is to provide plenty of opportunity for public review. Permitting for the project will follow immediately after the EA is approved. Aagenes said much of the permitting process is being conducted in parallel to the EA process, since many of the same agencies are involved. Cliffs' is still aiming to have its entire operation up and running by 2016, but that could change, depending on the results of the EA and the feasibility study, which are being conducted simultaneously, Aagenes said. The company will then assess the findings of the two reports, industry conditions and Cliffs' cash position to make its final decision on startup. "We've always acknowledged we're in the feasibility stage of this process," Aagenes said.

"In terms of Neskantaga's interest in the river, that is one of many aspects that has to be incorporated into the environmental assessment," said Jason Aagenes, director of environmental affairs at Cliffs, during an Oct. 24 media briefing prior to a Cliffs open house in Thunder Bay.
Jason Aagenes, director of environmental affairs for Cliffs' ferroalloys division, briefed reporters on the environmental assessment of the four components of its Ring of Fire. Cliffs is looking to develop an open-pit mine in the James Bay lowlands, which will include a concentrator to crush chromite ore and a lined tailings pond. It is also developing an integrated transportation corridor to move concentrated ore from the Ring of Fire to a ferrochrome processing plant it plans to build at the former Moose Mountain Mine site, north of Capreol. Aagenes said the project is in the feasibility and environmental assessment stages, and said Cliffs is working on an aggressive deadline to begin mining and processing by 2016. While it is still too early to determine any negative impacts mining activity might have on the environment, Jason Aagenes, director of environmental affairs at Cliffs, said Wednesday the company is still in the early stages of an ongoing process. "We have been collecting baseline data for a number of years," Aagenes said.
