||Boart Longyear Canada
Boart Longyear is planning to remove our drills and drilling-related equipment from the Roche Bay and Tuktu camp areas, about 60 km west and southwest of Hall Beach. The previous operator, Advanced Explorations, has abandoned the site; our equipment that was in use on site when the property was abandoned remains in place. We would like to remove this equipment to ensure no lasting environmental effects associated with its storage.
To do this work, we plan to access the site in summer 2018. We plan to set up a small, temporary camp, and will be collecting our equipment using a helicopter and a fixed wing. Two pieces of equipment are too large to fly, so we plan to move these overland along an existing trail. We plan to store the equipment in sea cans, and the sea cans will then be removed during the next sealift.
