Neskonlith Indian Band sends eviction notice to Imperial Metals


The Neskonlith Indian Band in British Columbia has issued an eviction notice to the mining company responsible for last week’s massive tailings pond breach before a similar mine is developed on their land.

Chief Judy Wilson says Imperial Metals, through its subsidiary Ruddock Creek Mining, is seeking approval for a mine in their territory but accuse the company of failing to protect lands and point to the Mount Polley tailings pond breach Aug 4.

“(Mount Polley) could have been prevented if Imperial Metals had proper risk assessment and management practices in place; and the provincial and federal governments had properly assessed and monitored the mining operation,” says Wilson in a statement.
