The Proposed Project

Waskonaman Askih Construction GP LTD. is proposing to amend the original project submission for the gravel pit to include additional areas. Aggregate was identified over a 15 ha area, the proponnt is proposing to amend their 3 ha pit to a 15 ha pit, including a 1.5 ha laydown area. The proposed project would consist of 5 Phases (3 ha in size). Each phase will extract approximately 100,000 m3 of aggregate, for a total of ~500,000 m3. Based on Alberta Transportation criteria (1 m3 = 1.632 tonnes), the project will mine ~816,000 tonnes of aggregate throughout the life of the project. Previous project details (i.e., laydown area, equipment used) remain the same. Each phase will be mined for an approximate 2-year period, and progressively reclaimed. In total, the project is anticipated to be mined and reclaimed within a 10-15 year time frame.
