Ambershaw Metallics Inc. (AMI) is proposing to develop the Bending Lake Iron Ore Deposit, an open pit mine about 285 km northwest of Thunder Bay, Ontario. The mine is anticipated to process 1.9 million tonnes per year of DR-grade pellets from 8 million tonnes of crude ore.
Since 2017, PECG has been involved in both the management and delivery of technical environmental services for the recommencement of baseline investigations for the proposed AMI Mine. PECG’s in-house expertise in fisheries, water quality, geomorphology, hydrology and hydrogeology, combined with our experience and reputation with Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), provided a basis for collecting defensible environmental baseline data. PECG also manages a team of subconsultants and employs a team of local First Nation community members. The baseline information is anticipated to support the Advanced Exploration permit (Bulk Sample Permit), as well as a future Environmental Assessment for the development of the mine to production.
PECG continues to be heavily involved with the project. Members of our team are actively engaged in environmental baseline data collection, are responding to requests for information from regulatory agencies, and are providing guidance on critical next steps in the assessment process.
