NOTICE: The Mackenzie Valley Environmental Impact Review Board is using
its authority under the Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act to order an

• the area is traditionally used by local Indigenous communities and residents
of the town of Hay River

not been fully reclaimed
• the potential impacts of this Project may combine cumulatively with past,
present, and future activities in the area
