      Environment minister, Terry Lake, and Energy, Mines and Natural Gas minister, Rich Coleman, have issued a conditional Environmental Assessment Certificate to Avanti Kitsault Mine Ltd. for the Kitsault open-pit molybdenum mine project located at the head of Alice Arm, approximately kilometres north of Prince Rupert.   This was a mining project which was approved in the BC provincial environmental assessment process in but rejected in the federal process. Within the post, the student writes “an in depth comparison shall be necessary once the environmental impact assessment is officially completed under the CEAA ”, and two years later, the results. Abandoned mine lands include areas where mining or processing activity is temporarily inactive." EPA's AML Program identifies ways to protect human health and the environment by using all of the non-regulatory and regulatory approaches available to the Agency.
