Meadowbank Precious Metal Project (148482)
Proposal Status: Conformity Determination Issued
Project Overview
Type of application: New
Proponent name: Mr. Fabio Capponi
Company: 5530 Nunavut Inc.
Start Date: 2017-06-15
End Date: 2017-07-27
Operation Type: Annual
Project Description:
The Meadowbank Precious Metal Project is located on crown land north of Baker Lake, in the Kivalliq Region of Nunavut. A total of 33 Claims have been staked by the company to date, and the remaining claims are currently being staked. The Project is split up into three Areas (the northern Area A, the Central Area B and Southern Area C). The proposed 2017 exploration activities on the project include prospecting, geochemical sampling, and ground geophysics. Then intent of the 2017 work is to delineate targets for future drilling. As soon as drillhole targets can been identified, the locations will be sent to the appropriate regulatory bodies for approval. The 2017 exploration program is anticipated to commence approximately June 15th and it is anticipated to run for 6 weeks. A small fly camp will be required to support the exploration activities at the project. It is estimated that no more than approximately 2 m3 of water will be required at the fly camp. When drill targets are identified a larger camp and more water use will be required. An amendment to the permits and licences will be submitted to account for the lareger camp and water use. It is anticipated that all personnel, equipment and supplies will be brought to the project area from Baker Lake along the Angico Eagle Meadowbank road and then slung by helicopter to the camp. A request to use the road is currently being drafted to submit to Agnico-Eagle. A helicopter will remain onsite to move personnel around the project. One or two small fuel caches will be required consisting of less than 4,000 litres of fuel at a time.

Waste and Impacts
Environmental Impacts
The potential environmental impacts of the 2017 small scale grassroots exploration program are anticipated to be negligible. All garbage produced from the 2017 program will be properly stored and removed to be disposed of in Baker Lake weekly. Camp greywater will be stored and treated in an excavated sump, which will allow for slow infiltration into the soil and will be located at least 31 m away from any waterbody. As the program progresses and expands all activities will be assessed for environmental impact risks and every measure available will be taken to ensure the protection and preservation of the natural environment. Drill sites will be located at least 31 m from any waterbody. All drillhole locations will be submitted to the proper regulating authorities for approval. Recirculation and filtration equipment will be used to minimize the amount of water used in during drilling activities. Any residual drill water will be contained in sumps at least 31 m from any waterbody. Secondary containment will be used for all fuel and chemicals and appropriate spill kits will be located at each fuel cache, drillhole and camp. All exploration activities will be documented and drill sites photographed to comply with environmental due diligence. Environmental training, monitoring, reclamation, and site clearance surveys will be built in to the program budget to ensure adequate resources are being allocated to environmental management.
