PDAC and MAC Disturbance Project RFP

The objective of this project is to develop an independent, verifiable estimate of the physical footprint of mineral exploration and mining activities in Canada as a means of providing clear, scientific information to improve understanding of the sector. The data will be used to accurately inform decisionmakers and other stakeholders about the degree of disturbance. The data will also be of value in conducting regional environmental impact assessments, providing accurate information on the listing of species on federal and provincial species at risk lists.
