Neither side in a dispute between mining and First Nations interests sees a joint federal-provincial panel’s recommendation not to approve the Kemess North copper-gold mine as the end.

A response from Northgate Minerals, the applicant of the proposed mine, focussed on the panel’s conclusion that the project would not likely cause significant adverse environmental effects and that Duncan (Amazay) Lake is the only viable waste disposal option. The release also notes the environment ministers for the respective governments could override the recommendation and approve the mine anyway.
