As a reminder, at the 2023 Awards ceremony in Prince George, BC the award winners were as follow: Imperial Metals – Mount Polley Mine and Habitat Remediation Working Group are the recipients of the Jake McDonald Annual Mine Reclamation Award for the remediation of Hazeltine and Edney creeks following the breach of the Mount Polley Mine tailings storage facility in 2014. Centerra Gold – Mount Milligan Mine and Chu Cho Environmental received the Metal Mining Category Award for ongoing progressive reclamation at the Mount Milligan Mine near Prince George BC. The approach focused on the collection of native seed, propagation of native plants using a local nursery, and collaboration with a team of Northern BC-based companies, educational institutions, and professionals. The incorporation of local Indigenous cultural values has helped to identify target species for use in reclamation. Teck Resources Limited is the recipient of the Coal Mining Category Award for its use of uphill contouring to re-slope rock spoils at the Coal Mountain Mine near Sparwood; benefits included geotechnical stability of waste spoils without impacting undisturbed or reclaimed downslope areas. Orca Sand and Gravel received the Sand and Gravel Category Award for its ongoing progressive reclamation efforts at the Orca Quarry near Port McNeill as demonstrated by the reclamation of a sediment storage facility and its engagement with the Kwakiutl First Nation and ‘Namgis First Nation to adapt planting prescriptions based on feedback from community members.
