The Sisson Mine environmental assessment included the construction of a Tailings Storage Facility (TSF) for the safe management and disposal of tailings (mine waste). The construction of the proposed TSF will result in the loss of a natural water body frequented by fish and, therefore, requires a regulatory amendment to list the water body on Schedule 2 of the Metal Mining Effluent Regulation (MMER) and an Authorization under the Fisheries Act.
