KGHM-Ajax will hold four sessions next week to answer questions about its proposed mine and its impacts.
The presentations and meetings are scheduled Sept. 9 and 11, from 5 to 9 p.m. and Sept. 10 and 12 from 1 to 5 p.m.
Corporate spokeswoman Robin Bartlett said Friday that experts working for the mining company will make five presentations on key subjects: blasting and ground vibration, air quality, water quality, human health and ecological risk, and noise and vibration.
“The goal is really just to give the community an idea of the studies we’re doing. We picked the areas of most concern.”
The Polish mining company plans an open pit mine at the site of the former Ajax pit, located within four kilometres of residential subdivisions in Aberdeen.
The corporation recently announced it is planning to move proposed mining operations, including waste piles, south of the pit and away from the city.
The presentations will be held at TRU’s Grand Hall. Each 20-minute presentation will be followed by a 20-minute question-and-answer period.
On the last day of the open houses, Kamloops Area Preservation Association plans a rally for noon at the university’s campus activity centre.
