Concern Sample Clauses

Concern. The Community is concerned about the potential for successful reclamation based on the amount of soil reclamation material that is typically being used (i.e., 30 cm with the exception of unsuitable materials (e.g., saline, sodic) where a 50 cm layer of soil will be used). Although this is consistent with the current version of the Land Capability Classification System (CEMA 2006), there is no evidence to date that this minimum treatment can successfully sustain low-productivity commercial forests. In fact, thinner caps are inherently more risky for use in reclamation, due to their having lower moisture-storage capacity and nutrient capital than thicker caps. In light of this risk, and in the absence of evidence documenting the success of the 00-xx xxx, Xxxx XxXxx believes that Total Joslyn should adopt a precautionary approach to reclamation, until such time as the success of more minimal treatments can be demonstrated. Commitment: Total Joslyn will ensure there is 50 cm of suitable growing medium1 present in the reclaimed landscape, which can consist of a combination of overburden, subsoil and soil with at least 1 metre of overburden or tailing sand plus reclamation material over unsuitable material until such time as the success of more minimal treatments can be demonstrated. Total Joslyn plans to use direct placement of soil material as much as possible. Total Joslyn also plans to maximize the use of upland soils. Peat/mineral soil blend will also be utilized in the reclamation program. Total Joslyn will use “special reclamation practices” to improve reclamation success and enhance biodiversity on reclaimed sites. Total Joslyn will establish reclamation trial plots early in the life of the mine to monitor the performance of various soil prescriptions. Knowledge gained from these trials will be used to adapt and improve future reclamation programs. Total Joslyn plans to monitor the reclamation landscape with engagement from representatives of Fort XxXxx. Total Joslyn will ensure that stripping of topsoil will be supervised by a soils specialist to ensure that no saline or sodic materials are being stripped. Total Joslyn will fully salvage all upland surface soils including upland organic materials (LFH) from all land within the proposed footprint of all major mine components, including pits, plants sites and overburden disposal areas (as per approval conditions) but excluding the tailings pond. Total Joslyn will consider and discuss with Fort XxXxx the s...
Concern. The Community is concerned about the capability of the Project’s end pit lake to sustain aquatic life and develop water quality to an acceptable standard to Fort XxXxx. The Community is also concerned and potential impacts to the Xxxx River from end pit lake discharge.
Concern include chemicals, pollutants, contaminants, wastes, toxic substances, petroleum and petroleum products and any other substance that is currently regulated by an Environmental Law or that is otherwise a danger to health, reproduction or the environment.
Concern. The Community is concerned that the cumulative effects of mining will affect the ability to reclaim the landscape across lease boundaries.
Concern. The Community is concerned about the potential noise from bird deterrents that will be used for waterfowl control on tailings ponds. The community would like to be consulted regarding bird deterrent options and their effects on noise levels and perception at Fort XxXxx, trapper cabins and other traditional use areas.
Concern. The Community is concerned about the impact of barriers to movement and other impacts of movement corridors on deer, moose and other species.
Concern. The Community is concerned that the project may increase noise levels and interfere with their ability to conduct activities on their traditional lands. The Community is particularly concerned about the potential for increased noise levels at trappers cabins, at the mouth of the Xxxx River, which is an important community traditional use area that is located less than one mile from Pit 1 and at the Community of Fort XxXxx.
Concern. The Community is concerned about the effects of emissions from the Joslyn North Mine Project and cumulative effects of air emissions on water quality.
Concern. The Community, through the IRC, requires input into all environmental monitoring plans and mitigation strategies. The IRC should also be consulted regarding any changes to the monitoring and mitigation strategies set out herein or in the annual Action Plans.
Concern. The Community is concerned about the loss of access to traditional medicinal plants.
