Project to Regularize and Expand the Existing Quarry at the Kangirsuk Airport
Step of the procedure /
Autorization of modification of the certificate of authorization
The proponent wishes to regularize the quarry and plan an expansion to meet the needs of the MTQ and the Northern Village for the next 1015 years. To do this, the proponent proposes to form a continuous surface area with two main zones to facilitate the monitoring of operations.
The quarry expansion will meet a one-time KRG requirement for summer 2021 (3,850 m3 of granular material) for culvert repairs at the Tasialuup Creek crossing (Ref. # 3215-08-024), as well as for long-term maintenance of the airport runway and access road. Maintenance and improvement of the runway, which requires approximately 20,000 m3 at each iteration, is performed at 3-, 5-, and 7-year intervals, as needed. Thus, the proposed expansion would remove approximately 93,000 m3 and provide at least three maintenance cycles.
