Project CLEANS

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. 

The goal of Project CLEANS is to conduct remediation activities in a manner that meets or exceeds regulatory requirements. Once the sites are cleaned up and made safe, environmental monitoring will be done to ensure remediation activities are successful. 

SRC is focused on safe work practices and is working with regulatory agencies to ensure the safety of workers and the public during the project.
