Project Overview
Type of application: Amendment

Project Description:
Nahanni Construction Ltd. (NCL) wants to build the winter road from the diamond mines in NWT to the Lupin Mine in Nunavut in order to transport equipment and supplies to Lupin for ongoing reclamation. Currently, the winter road is only built to the diamond mines, not all the way to Lupin; NCL wants to use the existing winter road to the diamond mines, and then build the rest of the road to Lupin themselves. NCL plans to need the road for 2-5 years. They will build it in December and January each year, and then move the required equipment and supplies between Lupin and Yellowknife from January to April. The winter road will close in April once the ice becomes unsafe. The winter road from Tibbitt, NT, to Lupin, and beyond to the Jericho Mine, has been reviewed and constructed in the past (refer to NIRB file #s 00RN085 Tibbitt to Contwoyto, 02RN037 Tibbitt to Lupin, 04RN111 Tibbitt to Jericho). It is understood that the Tibbitt to Contwoyto Winter Road Joint Venture (TCJV) currently holds a Licence of Occupation (NIRB # 02RN037) for the winter road route from the NT/NU border to Lupin. The Applicant wishes to access this winter road corridor occupied by the TCJV Licence. Conversations with the TCJV indicate that the TCJV has no immediate plans to construct and operate the winter road in Nunavut and so there are no known conflicts relted to this aspect of the proposed land use operation.
Summary of Modifications:
The Applicant wishes to withdraw additional water to support winter road construction. The original application included withdrawal of 49 m3/day of water, to be authorized by the NWB as a Use Without a Licence. The Applicant now wishes to withdraw up to 299 m3/day to be authorized by the NWB under a Type B licence. There are no other proposed changes to the Project scope. The Land Use Licencing tab has been updated to reflect current authorizations. The Applicant requests consideration of this change in accordance with item 5 of Schedule 12-1 of the Nunavut Agreement.
