On January 31, 2014 in compliance with its Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada permit, its Kivalliq Inuit Association Land Use Licence and its Nunavut Water Board Licence, AREVA Resources Canada submitted its Kiggavik Project Field Program 2013 Annual Report.
This report provides a summary of the Kiggavik Project exploration activities conducted in 2013. The exploration field program, undertaken between June 19 and September 1, 2013, focused on diamond drilling to further evaluate potential deposits. The team drilled over 10,500 metres in 39 holes.
The Kiggavik Project put in place environmental management plans during the field program to prevent or reduce any potential adverse effects from our exploration activities. We also implemented our occupational health, safety and radiation protection programs to ensure workers performed their tasks in a safe and responsible manner and were not exposed to potentially adverse effects from uranium exploration activities. As part of our integrated management system, AREVA maintained its ISO 14001:2004 environmental certification and its OHSAS 18001:2007 occupational safety certification.
