Highland Valley landfill : from concept through environmental assessment Freberg, Mark; Sperling, Tony, 1960-


Highland Valley Copper’s reclamation program is driven by an End Land Use Plan developed in 1998. One of the goals of the Plan is to develop suitable end uses that will minimize the impact of the mine’s eventual closure, both on the environment and nearby communities. In 2002, landfilling was proposed as a new land use. The concept has now advanced to the point that a Project Approval Certificate for a large municipal landfill is expected from the Province in September 2008. This paper describes the project and the environmental review process.
