How can you manage abandoned mine sites in northern Canada? In the April 2023 cover story of Environmental Science & Engineering, Environmental Geoscientist Reid Smith and Infrastructure Practice Leader Arlen Foster write about their experience assessing, remediating, and performance monitoring abandoned mine sites in the Northwest Territories. Their work provides a valuable case study for currently operating mines and agencies that are actively managing environmental liabilities through sustainable measures.
