Assessing Climate Change Risk on Abandoned or Orphaned Mine Sites in Ontario, Yukon and Northwest Territories (2018–2020)
In partnership with the Northern Climate ExChange at Yukon College, the aim of this project was to identify climate change risks applicable to abandoned mines in Canada. Specifically, the project involved reviewing rehabilitation plans and documents for a selection of abandoned or orphaned mine sites to determine whether or how they account for climate change, proposing adaptation measures to help reduce climate change risk at abandoned and orphaned mine sites and conducting a climate change risk assessment at one site. This initiative was made possible with support from Natural Resources Canada.
