Seabridge Gold Responds to Inaccurate Information Regarding the KSM Project in the New Map/Press Release issued by SkeenaWild and the BC Mining Law Reform Network

Seabridge Gold’s Brent Murphy wrote a letter to SkeenaWild and BC Mining Law Reform Network highlighting inaccurate information regarding the KSM Project published in the map/press release titled ‘New Map Shows Dozens Of Mine Pollution Threats In BC’.

In the map ‘BC Contaminated Mine Sites’ the KSM Project was identified as a mine site with acid rock drainage concerns. This is an inaccurate and highly misleading statement. KSM Project is not a mine, it is a potential mining project.

The report also failed to mention that Seabridge Gold has been collecting surface water quality monitoring data for the KSM Project in upper Mitchell Creek, upstream of the confluence with McTagg Creek, since 2007. The Mitchell Glacier is receding over time, which has exposed the Mitchell deposit. This exposure causes naturally occurring acid rock drainage due to oxidation of the sulphide mineralization within the bedrock. This acid rock drainage is not caused by the KSM Project. The naturally occurring acid rock drainage has already impacted the water quality of Mitchell Creek, Sulphurets Creek and the Unuk River, long before and irrespective of the proposed KSM Project. Water quality in these watersheds cannot therefore be characterized as pristine.

The letter also includes pictures to demonstrate the existing natural conditions around the KSM Project, factual information about KSM Project’s Water Treatment and Tailings Management Facility, Environmental Assessment, and the voluntary environmental remediation work at the Johnny Mountain Mine at our Iskut Project.

Seabridge Gold responds to misleading information about the KSM Project published in The Narwhal

Seabridge Gold’s Brent Murphy wrote a letter to Emma Gilchrist, Editor-in-Chief and Executive Director of The Narwhal highlighting the misleading information about the KSM Project published in the article titled ‘B.C. voters support mining reforms that protect the environment, make polluter pay: poll’, written by Matt Simmons, Northwest B.C. Reporter.

In the article, Mr. Simmons quoted Nikki Skuce where she used Seabridge Gold’s KSM Project’s example to support her claim that B.C.’s mining laws support projects even if they are located near important watersheds. However, he failed to mention that the proposed KSM Project successfully completed a rigorous independent joint harmonized BC-CANADA Environmental Assessment over a seven-year period (2007-2104) as mandated by the BC Environmental Assessment Act and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (1992) respectively.

He also failed to mention the substantial public support Seabridge has gathered for the KSM Project by conducting hundreds of meetings with community members, regulators, Treaty and First Nations. Seabridge also voluntarily conducted over 130 meetings/interactions with Alaskan community members, regulators and Tribes during the EA process. As a result of these meetings and feedback from all participants, Seabridge made $300 million dollars in design changes to the project’s capital cost

Seabridge Gold corrects the record, news release published in SitNews

Seabridge Gold’s Brent Murphy, sent a letter to  Mary Kauffman, Editor of SitNews to clarify statements made in the recent news release published by SitNews titled ‘SEITC Responds to UN Special Rapporteur’s Report’ where referring to impacts of upstream dams, one of the recommendations from the report said ‘Canada should take proactive measures to prevent environmental harm and respect concerns of risk of harm including where host countries have put in place no-go-zones for resource extraction’. Mr. Frederick Olsen Jr was quoted responding to this recommendation, “Exactly! On their side of the border, they want the KSM mine which would be one of the world’s largest mines but a few miles away, on our side, we have Misty Fjords National Monument and plenty of sacred sites.”

The above statement by Mr. Olsen does not stand true for Seabridge Gold’s KSM Project. The KSM Project’s Tailings Management Facility is located in the upper reaches of the Bell Irving River Basin and drains into Canadian waters, not the Unuk River, or any other US waterway. To imply otherwise is simply incorrect.

Further, the proposed KSM Project successfully completed a rigorous independent joint harmonized BC-CANADA Environmental Assessment over a seven-year period (2007-2104), a regulatory review that also involved both US Federal and State representatives working alongside Provincial and Federal regulators. As we experienced, the BC EA process includes a five-pillar assessment and ensures that any potential environmental, economic, social, heritage and health effects that may occur during the lifetime of a major project, are thoroughly assessed.

Seabridge Gold responds to Inaccurate Information about Selenium Removal Technology adopted at KSM Project published in The Narwhal

Seabridge Gold’s Brent Murphy wrote a letter to Stephanie Wood reporter at The Narwhal and Chris Sergeant, Research scientist at the University of Montana correcting incorrect information about the Selenium Removal Technology adopted at KSM Project that was published in the article titled ‘Seabridge Gold asks B.C. for more time to begin KSM mine construction, citing COVID-19’.

In the Narwhal article, Chris Sergeant was quoted as saying “Water that contacts the mine on the Unuk River side will drain directly into a water storage reservoir. This water would receive treatment before discharge into the Unuk watershed. But there isn’t currently a proven method for sufficient removal of selenium — which has been shown to negatively impact fish populations — and mine operations are expected to increase selenium levels in the water. This statement is incorrect.

In 2015, Seabridge successfully completed a pilot plant evaluation of a new process for the removal of selenium from waters in northwest BC. The pilot plant was constructed and operated by independent BioteQ Environmental Technologies, Inc. using their Selen-IX™ treatment technology. This selenium treatment technology was able to reduce selenium concentrations to 1 ppb in water extracted from the KSM project site and thus, satisfied a key legally binding condition of the BC Environmental Assessment Certificate which Seabridge received for the KSM Project on July 30, 2014. The KSM Se treatment information was shared with the public in 2015. In 2018, the Selen-IX™ treatment technology was issued a US patent further validating Seabridge Gold’s chosen approach for selenium treatment at the KSM Project.
