Hope Bay and Elu greenstone belt mapping project (149339)
Proposal Status: Conformity Determination Issued
Project Overview
Type of application: New
Proponent name: Lorraine
Company: Canada-Nunavut Geoscience Office
Schedule:
Start Date: 2020-07-21
End Date: 2022-12-31
Operation Type: Seasonal
Project Description:
The Hope Bay and Elu greenstone belts are known gold and base metal endowed areas located in the Slave craton of western Nunavut (Kitikmeot Region). Both greenstone belts are largely claimed by TMAC Resources, where gold is produced at the Doris and Madrid properties. Although they have been explored by industry since the 1960’s, and mapped regionally by the GSC, detailed work is warranted in many targeted prospective areas. The purpose of this initiative is to collaborate with TMAC and conduct research in a targeted area with suspected extensions of a known gold deposit. This endeavour will expand our understanding of the economic potential of the Hope Bay and Elu greenstone belts, and by extension of other greenstone belts in Slave craton. The project will have field work from Jul 21st – August 4th at the Doris camp, summer 2020. The field crew will be transported by helicopter daily to the field area. Timing may vary due to weather and camp availability. Field work will continue in 2021 for 3-4 weeks, exact dates are to be determined. The goal of this project is to create a targeted 1:10 000 – 1:15 000 geologic map on the Hope Bay greenstone belt property. This geologic map should include items of mineral exploration interest (e.g., economic mineral showings, alteration, major structures, volcanic stratigraphy).

Waste and Impacts
Environmental Impacts
This is a minimalistic project that will be based out of current infrastructure at the Doris mining camp owned by TMAC Resrouces Inc. Only 6-8 people will participate (geologists and pilots+engineers). All waste disposal in the camp will follow TMAC Resources Inc.'s protocols and regulations. Waste that is made in the field (lunch wrappings) will be packed and disposed of at the Doris camp facilities. There will be no waste left in the field. The noise from helicopters can cause impacts on wildlife. We will assure that if any large mammals such as polar bears, caribou, muskox and wolves are seen , we will vacate the area and work somewhere else for the day. The helicopter will fly at an appropriate altitude to reduce the stress on animals below.
Waste Management

Sewage (human waste) 74 lbs none toilets in camp (average person has 400g of waste per day)
