Environment Minister Charlene Johnson announced today in the House of Assembly that last Friday government awarded a contract to P & B Trucking & Rentals Inc. of Springdale for the remediation and capping of the tailings spill and mucky ditch areas in Buchans at the former mine site.
Tenders for the work closed June 14 and the company was the successful bidder at a cost of about $3.1 million. The work will get underway immediately and should be completed by early fall.
Based on a call for proposals last winter, contracts totaling $215,000 have also been awarded to the Bae-Newplan Group for the design, contract administration, and onsite supervision of the project.
Together with the tailings dam remediation project to be tendered later this summer by the Department of Natural Resources, Johnson said government is carrying out its commitment to address the areas of concern in Buchans.
The minister said the efforts will be further complemented by a contract for approximately $75,000 to Conestoga-Rovers and Associates, an environmental consulting firm, for the development of a risk management plan for the town. The plan will address the residential and public areas in Buchans where concentrations of lead in the soil exceed human health guidelines.

Organizations: P & B Trucking & Rentals Inc. of Springdale, Bae-Newplan Group, Department of Natural Resources
