Addressing Misleading Claims About the KSM Project

Several misleading claims about the KSM Project were made in the recent report titled ‘Dirty Dozen 2021: B.C.’s top polluting and risky mines’ published by SkeenaWild Conservation Trust and the BC Mining Law Reform Network. Through this factsheet, we would like to share accurate facts about our KSM Project and highlight how we are advancing the Project using the best available technologies, robust sustainable practices and most importantly, collaborative relationships with our Indigenous partners and stakeholders.

Seabridge Gold’s Brent Murphy also sent a letter to Adrienne Berchtold, co-author of the report addressing all the factual errors and inaccuracies mentioned in the report and demanded an immediate correction of incorrect information that was published. He also invited her to reach out to him to learn accurate facts about the KSM Project before publicly sharing information about the Project, to eliminate transmitting any further factual errors.

Seabridge Sends Letter to the Alaskan House Fisheries Special Committee to Address Inaccuracies shared by the Presenters

During the House Fisheries Special Committee hearing on April 28, 2021, several issues related to British Columbia-Alaska transboundary mining and exploration were raised by select presenters, which were either misleading or inaccurate. Seabridge Gold’s Brent Murphy wrote letters to the House Fisheries Special Committee to share factual and pertinent information to address these inaccuracies.

In the letter, he also highlighted the legislative and regulatory changes that were made to BC mining laws since the Mount Polley incident, the importance of inviting mining and exploration companies operating in the transboundary region on any discussions around the transboundary water monitoring programs, water quality monitoring program Seabridge is conducting and the voluntary environmental remediation work Seabridge is conducting at the Johnny Mountain Mine.

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.

Bursary Application Winter 2021

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
