Quotes

Seabridge Gold chairman and CEO Rudi Fronk commented: "The granting of land tenure for the proposed Mitchell-Treaty tunnels is an especially important milestone for the project, as it awards to KSM the rights to a corridor connecting the project's two main areas - the mine site and the tailings management facility."
"The Imperial Metals Red Chris mine's storage facility in Tahltan territory is much larger and uses the same structure and technology as the Mount Polley Mine and so it is not a question of if, but when the storage facility would breach and destroy yet another integral salmon-bearing watershed, the Stikine River of the Tahltan territory … The Klabona Keepers and the Secwepemc [Grandmothers Fireplace] are exercising their natural law, and asserting their jurisdiction to regulate industry in their own Territories" says the release
"The public needs to know what else has been hidden about this disaster. And they also need to know whether there are problems at other earthen dams that the government has either covered up or chosen to ignore" Horgan said
"A tension crack does not necessarily indicate a plane of weakness in fill materials but it can't be ignored either" Knight Piesold, the company's geotechnical engineering firm at the time, said in its report
