The Kiggavik Project is operated by AREVA Resources Canada Inc. in a joint venture with JCU Exploration (Canada) Co. Ltd. and DAEWOO Corporation.
The Project is advancing through a review under the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement. The Nunavut Impact Review Board is leading the review with participation from Inuit Organizations, Federal and Territorial government departments/agencies and a number of other interested groups. Anyone can participate in the review, and your views, concerns and/or opinions will be considered.
AREVA is currently undergoing an environmental review process. You can read our Draft
Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) here. Through the stakeholder review process, we’ve heard your requests for more information, and you can read our responses here. If you have additional questions, you can contact our regulators, Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB), and the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC).
This review ensures that the Project meets the requirements for development in Nunavut, including a healthy environment and communities during the Project and into the future.
