British Columbia Mine Reclamation Symposium

NOAMI and partners : a six-year retrospective Hogan, Charlene M.; Tremblay, Gilles A.


The legacy of orphaned/abandoned mines, with their associated environmental liability, human health concerns and the financial costs of clean up, is a serious issue facing Canada. The National Orphaned/Abandoned Mines Initiative (NOAMI) is a unique Canadian co-operative program that was established in 2002 in response to the request of the Canadian Mines Ministers. NOAMI and its Canadian partners are addressing the environmental and social challenges of decommissioning abandoned mines. An overview of NOAMI’s activities during the last six years and examples of rehabilitation of orphaned/abandoned sites will be explored.
