Remediation efforts at the former Gunnar Mine and Mill Site reached a new milestone last spring—with the first stage of revegetation coming to fruition. Learn how this long-abandoned uranium mine and mill has undergone a large environmental transformation over the past decade.
Skye Muirhead is the Operations Lead for SRC’s Environmental Remediation team. Learn more about Muirhead's career and work at SRC as she and her team take on the complex task of remediating abandoned uranium mine and mill sites in northern Saskatchewan.
Alexey Klyashtorin is a world-renowned expert on nuclear and environmental remediation. He works on SRC's Project CLEANS team where he applies his industrial and academic experience to remediating abandoned uranium mine and mill sites in northern Saskatchewan. Read on.
Thinking about a career in science? Here’s what some geoscientists and engineers at SRC have to say.
There’s no rule that you must be born with math and science skills to pursue a career in engineering; it’s all about persistence, and a deep desire for learning new things and discovering how they work. We had a chat with a few of our engineers and geoscientists at SRC to learn more about what drew them to their careers. Find out what it's like to live a life of science.
For mining and energy companies, community engagement is an important component of many projects and sites, from exploration through operation to remediation. Learn why local trust and project understanding are key to successfully working with communities across the life of a project.
SRC hosted a panel event with four industry experts for a discussion about the progression of historic mining practices—the legacy issues we face today and what we may face tomorrow, and what sustainability really means. Read part two of the discussion.
SRC collaborated with project stakeholders to safely restart Project CLEANS remediation work during the 2020 field season. Learn about the work that was done and what's in store for 2021.
SRC's Project CLEANS team travelled to five uranium mine sites in northern Saskatchewan that had been abandoned in the 50s and 60s to conduct preliminary site investigations as part of large-scale remediation project. Learn about the challenges of visiting these sites and the work being done to clean them up.
Ian Wilson leads a team of scientists, engineers and project managers who are remediating 37 abandoned uranium mine sites scattered across remote areas of northern Saskatchewan. Learn what makes this project and the remediation team unique.
When many of uranium mines in northern Saskatchewan were abandoned in the 1950s and 60s, openings to mine workings were left without proper closures and pose a risk to public safety. SRC has been working with local contractors and consulting engineers to build proper mine closures. There are several methods available, depending on the type of opening and the site conditions.
