First phase of construction for the $85 million project for Crossroads Commerce Park to begin immediately following successful brownfield site remediation completion.
Through AEG, Alexco has a contractual arrangement to remediate environmental impacts from past mining activities in the Keno Hill Silver District on behalf of the Government of Canada and in partnership with the First Nation of Na-Cho Nyak Dun. AEG currently treats over one billion liters of water each year in the District and annually prevents about 100,000 kilograms of zinc and other heavy metals from the historic mines from entering the region’s streams. The amount of zinc entering the environment has been reduced by over 90 per cent since Alexco began its environmental activities.
