Environmental Impacts of this project will be minimal.
All garbage generated on the mineral claims during our work there will be bagged and transported back to Bathurst Inlet Lodge. Environmentally benign waste will be incinerated at the waste management site adjacent Bathurst Inlet Lodge. Recyclable materials such as scrap metal will be transported to Bathurst Inlet Lodge and taken to the nearest recycling facility in Yellowknife at the end of the project. Any non‐recyclable, non‐combustible waste generated by the project will be transported to the regional community landfill at Yellowknife.
All opportunities will be taken to reuse or recycle hazardous waste materials. Any hazardous waste produced because of the TTMG Project will be placed in sealed containers, labeled, and stored within secondary containment such as Arctic InstaBerms, or similar, until they can be reused or backhauled for recycling or disposal. Upon seasonal shutdown all hazardous wastes will be backhauled and disposed of properly to a registered hazardous waste receiver.

|Sewage (human waste)
||Unburned human waste will be subjected to additional incineration events until none remains
||Human waste generated while at Bathurst Inlet Lodge will be collected and burned at the waste management area adjacent the lodge. Human waste generated while on the mineral claims will be buried in a chosen location where the waste cannot enter or contaminate any water body or be disturbed by wildlife.
