Project Description:
Refer to attached detailed Project Description. Blue Star Gold Corp. (Blue Star) has recently acquired the Ulu Gold Project (the Project). Ulu is an existing gold project with mine-related infrastructure including a camp and related facilities, roads, an airstrip, a decline, underground development, waste rock and ore on surface, fuel storage and an equipment fleet. It was historically connected to the Lupin Mine via winter road. The site is currently in care and maintenance and has been undergoing progressive reclamation. The existing Project water licence 2BM-ULU1520 expires in May 2020 and Blue Star is seeking to renew and amend this water licence to support ongoing reclamation and recommencement of exploration. Existing activities and facilities have been screened and authorized in the past as follows (attached): NIRB screening decisions 99WR055, 04EN014, and 05EN007; NWB water licences NWB2ULU9700, NWB1ULU0008, 2BMULU0914 and 2BMULU1520. In addition to existing authorized activities, Blue Star wishes to undertake the following Project modifications: establish a new soil treatment facility; establish a new non-hazardous waste landfill; establish an alternate exploration camp location; utilize alternate industrial and domestic water supplies; increase water withdrawal volume to 200 m3/day.

Waste Management
Waste Type Quantity Generated Treatement Method Disposal Method
Overburden (organic soil, waste material, tailings) tbd - Cuttings disposal in a sump.Waste rock stockpiled on site, reclaimed in place or disposed of underground at final closure
Hazardous tbd - backhaul, dispose of at a suitable facility
Non-Combustible wastes tbd - Backhaul for disposal off site. Recycle, reuse/repurpose where possible. Landfill on site.
Overburden (organic soil, waste material, tailings) tbd Where it meets suitable criteria, use as cover in landfill and for other remediation activities on site. Any treated soil not meeting suitable criteria will be disposed of off site at a suitable facility. Treat hydrocarbon contaminated soil in a soil treatment facility (landfarm) on site.
Combustible wastes various Dispose of incinerator ash at a suitable facility. Incinerate
Greywater various Run through a grease trap prior to disposal. Place in a sump
Hazardous various - Backhaul, dispose of at a suitable facility
Non-Combustible wastes Various - Backhaul for disposal off site. Recycle, reuse/repurpose where possible. If non-hazardous, landfill on site.
