April 26th ENSL Featuring Jonathan Croston on the remediation of the Cork Mine 

The Kootenay region has a long history of mining. As a side effect of that mining, we also 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 Kalso, and the work being done to remediate it.

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-Lavalin. 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 and Selkirk Integrated Environmental Planning students at this interactive presentation and discussion, enjoy a great lunch, and network with your environmental professional peers at the 10th Street Campus of Selkirk College in Nelson.

Cost:  $10  or  $5 for students
