Project Description:
Kodiak Copper Corp.'s (formerly Dunnedin Ventures Inc.) Kahuna Diamond Property is located between the communities of Rankin Inlet (Kangiqtiniq) and Chesterfield Inlet (Igluigaarjuk) in the Kivalliq Region of Nunavut. The property 66 mineral claims covering approximately 820.3 square kilometres. The Property extends north, south, east and west between Latitudes 62°59’30” and 63°15’ 30” North and Longitudes 90°44’ and 91°49’ West. A total of 45 mineral claims have surface rights that are within, or partially within, the boundaries of surface Inuit Owned Land parcel CI-15. Exploration activities conducted by Kodiak on the Kahuna Diamond Property are authorized by CIRNAC Land Use Permit N2018C0022, KIA Land Use License KVL315B01, KIA Land Use License KVR16F01 and NWB Water License 2BE-KDP1722. Kodiak is applying to renew NWB Water License 2BE-KDP1722 which expires on May 30, 2022. Kodiak is not requesting any changes to the existing license. NWB Type “B” Water License 2BE-KDP1722, authorizes water use not to exceed one hundred (100) cubic metres per day; water for camp purposes is not to exceed three (3) cubic metres per day and water for drilling operations not to exceed 97 cubic metres per day. Water License 2BE-KDP1722 includes authorization for up to 150 drums (205L each) of diesel fuel, 150 drums of jet fuel, 10 drums of gasoline and 20 cylinders (100 lbs. each) of propane. The main cache and containment berms are located approximately 60 metres west of the Kahuna Camp at 575800mE 6990903mN UTM Zone 15, UTM NAD83. Activities currently authorized on the property including rock, till and soil sampling, prospecting and geological mapping, ground geophysical surveying, diamond drilling, reverse circulation drilling and bulk sampling and the Kahuna Camp. The Kahuna Camp was established in the spring of 2018. The Kahuna Field Camp is located on Crown Lands approximately 40 kilometres northeast from Rankin Inlet and 50 kilometres southwest from Chesterfield Inlet at 575,940mE and 6,990,898mN in Zone 15, UTM NAD83 and is co-owned by Kodiak and Solstice Gold Corp.

Waste and Impacts
Environmental Impacts
Early stage exploration programs are low-impact and occur over a short period of time. The effects of these programs are expected to be minor and mitigatable. Changes in flow, quantity and the quality of groundwater and surface water will not be impacted by the exploration program. The proposed camp requires <3m3/day and will operate seasonally. Water will be sourced from water bodies with sufficient capacity to accommodate the proposed usage quantity without impact to lake level or flow rates. Waterlines for domestic use will be placed to minimize disturbance to the shoreline/riparian zones and substrate. Water and aquatic life is protected. Waterlines will be screened in accordance with the “Freshwater Intake End-of-Pipe Screen Guideline” prepared by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. A copy of this guideline document is kept at the head office in Vancouver and at the camp field office. Mitigation measures are in place to minimize the environmental impacts of potential spills. All spills will be treated as per the “Spill Prevention and Response Plan”. Approved mitigations and SOPs for water use and waste water management will be applied at Kodiak’s Kahuna Diamond Property. No wastes will enter any water bodies or drainage courses. This includes discharge from the camp grey water sump. The grey water sump will be located at least 31 meters from the high water mark of a water body and will be inspected regularly. Digging of the grey water sump may alter the permafrost layer; however, upon final closure the sump will be backfilled and restored to the pre-existing natural contours of the land. Water use for the domestic camp water will be recorded daily. The Kahuna Property is not expected to impact fish or fish habitats. A water quality monitoring program will be established to generate baseline water quality data in areas of active exploration. Sample sites will be chosen on representative water bodies that focus on exploration targets and camp infrastructure locations. In addition to the mitigation measures outlined above, the exploration program will not have an effect on the following environmental topics: Geologic structures, vegetation species composition and abundance, non-native species introduction, benthic invertebrates or plankton. With the mitigation measures and SOPs in place there are no significant impacts or cumulative effects anticipated as a result of Kodiak’s water use and waste water management at the Kahuna Property. Refer to the “Waste Management Plan”, “Fuel Management Plan” and “Abandonment and Restoration Plan” for additional information. Predicted environmental and wildlife impacts and proposed mitigation measures are outlined in detail in Kodiak's “Environmental and Wildlife Management Plan”.
Waste Management
Waste Type Quantity Generated Treatement Method Disposal Method
Greywater <3 cubic metres per day Weeping bed Weeping bed
Sewage (human waste) ~0.05 cubic metres per day Ash generated from incineration is collected and shipped to an authorized facility for proper disposal. Bags are incinerated.
Combustible wastes minimal Ash is collected in 205L drums and shipping to an authorized facility for proper disposal. Combustible waste is incinerated.
Hazardous waste Minimal Hazardous wastes will be transported in accordance with the Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) and International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulations. All hazardous waste materials will be collected in sealed and appropriately labeled containers and stored in secondary containment. All hazardous wastes will be removed from the property regularly for recycling or authorized disposal. Refer to the Waste Management Plan for details on specific waste types.
Non-Combustible wastes Unknown Shipped to authorized facility for proper disposal. Non-combustible wastes (including scrap metal, electronics, mechanical equipment, etc.) will be collected in a designated area before being shipped off the property.

Low Level Air Flights:
s5.4.4 and Apendix 2, s3: Will the applicant avoid low-level flights?
NO
i. If not, explain why such flights are or may be absolutely necessary.
Helicopter’s require forward movement to gain altitude; therefore, low level flying will be required periodically to collect field crews and samples and will only be conducted when no wildlife are present. Fixed wing aircraft and helicopters will maintain a minimum altitude of 610 metres above ground level in places where there are migrating caribou, caribou cows and calves, muskoxen nurse groups and other wildlife. Helicopters will not land in any area where wildlife are present unless under an emergency situation. In the event of bad weather or an emergency, when low level flights are required, these instances will be recorded and reported to the KIA.
ii. If such flights are or may be absolutely necessary, will they avoid disturbance to people and wildlife?
YES
