Fears for long term economic impact of mine collapse have risen to 9, including a decision to suspend work at the entire site next year.
However, it has also been revealed that only two engineers remain contracted to continue the mine’s critical safety inspections and investigations.
“This is the largest industrial accident in Canadian history. It affects all of us. We’ve lost friends and colleagues and have even lost everything at work,” 우리카지노said UBC Senior University Education Professor Steve Leach in a prepared statement to CBC News.
The mine was opened in 1980, and has operated since then with 1.1 million tonnes of ore, producing 5 billion litres of drinking water and producing an annual revenue of around $40 million to $60 million per year, according to a 2012 analysis by the University of Victoria.
An environmental assessment concluded that there was a high risk that the blast “will continue to be very damaging and create long-term ecological, economic and social disruptions.”
The explosion last night came just as the first Canad더킹카지노ian mining permit was issued on the newly-approved B.C. licence, and just after a deadlin바카라사이트e for any new permits to be issued and for work to begin at the site.
