OTTAWA — Natural Resources Canada has released to new reports.
One is the first performance report documenting activities and achievements of Canada’s National Orphaned/Abandoned Mines Initiative (NOAMI). It covers six years of operation, from 2002 to 2008. The report focuses on the current state of orphaned and abandoned mines, NOAMI’s achievements and those of jurisdictions active in noami, future challenges and opportunities, plus the future of NAOMI.
The 28-page report may be downloaded from www.Abandoned-Mines.org or request a hardcopy from the NOAMI secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last month the Mine Environment Neutral Drainage (MEND) released its MEND report 2.11.2b, “Literature Review Report: Interactions between trace metals and aquatic organisms.” The report updates the 1993 review which discussed several tools that have now been validated and in some cases adopted by regulatory agencies.
The report is available only in hard copy only for $25 plus taxes. Email the MEND secretariat at mend-nedem@NRCan.gc.ca.
