Project CLEANS

(Cleanup of Abandoned Northern Sites) 

SRC is managing Project CLEANS — a multi-year, multimillion-dollar project to assess and reclaim Gunnar Uranium Mine and Mill site, Lorado Uranium Mill site and 35 satellite mine sites in northern Saskatchewan. The project is funded by the governments of Saskatchewan and Canada and is led by SRC's Environmental Remediation team.   

News

Following a public hearing on September 21, 2016, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) announced its decision to remove the Gunnar Remediation Project Phase 2 regulatory hold point. This will allow SRC to proceed with the remediation of the other site aspects, including the waste rock, open pit and mine openings, at the Gunnar legacy uranium mine site in Northern Saskatchewan. Read the announcement.

Communities

SRC engages with northern communities to facilitate meaningful participation in determining the best options for remediation. Discussions include community meetings and consultations with Aboriginal communities and leadership.

 

Environment and Safety

Safety is an overriding priority for SRC. We are working in conjunction with regulatory agencies to ensure the safety of workers and the public during the cleanup. SRC is focused on removing safety hazards that pose risks to local residents, the public and the environment.
