The Kootenay region has a long history of mining. As a side effect of that mining, we also now have a legacy of potentially environmentally-hazardous old mine sites. At the next Environmental Networking Seminar Luncheon (ENSL) on April 26th, you'll have the opportunity to learn about one such hazardous site in Kaslo, and the work being done to remediate it.
- When: Thursday, April 26th - 11:30 - 1:30

This ENSL will focus in on the Cork Mine and an unstable tailings deposit threatening to negatively affect the downstream drinking water and sensitive fish populations.
Jonathan Croston, P.Ag. is an environmental scientist with SNC-Lavelin. He will be sharing the science and techniques used to investigate the Cork Mine site and will be discussing the engineering aspects of tailings relocation.
Come on out and join KAST, local environmental science professionals and Selkirk Integrated Environmental Planning students at this interactive presentation and discussion. Enjoy a great lunch, and network with your peers at the 10th Street Campus of Selkirk College in Nelson.
The Kootenay Association for Science and Technology (KAST) and Selkirk College are excited to close out a stellar lineup for the 2011/2012 Environmental Networking Seminar Luncheon (ENSL) season that has seen room-filling crowds for the first two ENSL’s on the Waneta Dam Expansion and Cori Lausen’s local bat research.
