Study Finds No Discernable Impact From Tulsequah Chief Mine Discharge On Fish

Lori Townsend, APRN – Anchorage

Chieftan Metals Corporation, based in Toronto, is the owner of the Tulsequah Chief Mine. Company President and CEO Victor Wypryski was traveling and could not be reached for comment today, but a recent posting on the company’s website highlights the results of a February water quality study.

Conducted at the request of the British Columbia ministry of the environment, the study tested four sites on the Tulsequah River, near the confluence of the Taku River near the mine site. Chinook, Coho, sockeye salmon and dolly varden were tested. Researchers reportedly found no discernable impact in fish tissue samples from historic mining discharge

Part of Taku River King regulations rescinded
The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is rescinding regulations for Taku River King salmon sport fishing as of Friday for the salt waters of District 11 near Juneau.

Juneau Area Management Biologist Brian Glynn says since the regulations went into effect April 25th they have received new information indicating uncertainty over whether they will meet their escapement goals.

There are two changes to the regulations. One is that anglers may use only one rod rather than two. The other is that the annual limit for non-residents drops from 5 to 4.

The resident bag possession limit will continue to be three Kings, 28 inches or greater in length. The daily non-resident limit is one

The liberalized King salmon regulations announced earlier this week for the Juneau Hatchery Terminal Harvest area and for fresh water drainages crossing the Juneau road network are not affected.

They take effect at 12:01 Friday morning.

The possession limit is four Kings of any size. Kings caught by non-residents under terms of these liberalized regulations do not count toward their annual limit.

Chieftain reiterates: No mine without a road

by Rosemarie Alexander, KTOO
March 20, 2012 8:01 am,

 

An email from a Canadian mine developer to the Taku River Fact Finding Task Force has flummoxed some members and Juneau’s senator, but the company official who wrote it says it’s just semantics.

The group over the weekend produced its final report.

The task force was created last fall by Juneau legislators to address potential impacts of development in the Taku River watershed, particularly from the Tulsequah Chief Mine in British Columbia.

Rosemarie Alexander takes a look at the confusion that beset the group as it wrapped up its work.

 

Chieftain Metals’ Chief Operating Officer Keith Boyle recently emailed his comment on the task force draft report: “The financing is not conditional on a road. The project cannot be financed with a barging system that cannot deliver product to market.”

In January, Boyle told the task force that financiers will not loan money for the Tulsequah mine project if it depends on barging equipment up the Taku River to the mine, and barging product down the river to market.

The old mine at the headwaters of the Taku River shut down in the 1950s. Chieftain hopes it will be back in production by 2015.

Boyle couldn’t have been clearer in his January report to the eight-member citizen committee.

“The mine won’t go without the road,” he said by teleconference from his Toronto office.

His March 16 email, he thought, just clarified the point.

Juneau Senator Dennis Egan took it differently.

“It upset me very much when I saw that email. As far as I’m concerned that is absolutely not what was told to us on the Taku River Task Force,” Egan said at Saturday’s meeting, called to finalize the report.

Task Force facilitator Kevin Ritchie said Boyle, perhaps, “changed his mind.”

Neither the task force nor Egan have called Boyle for an interpretation of the email, and it appears only as a comment in the final task force report.

Boyle said Monday in an interview with KTOO that nothing has changed since he spoke to the committee three months ago.

“I have said that before. There’s no mine without a road, because barging does not work,” he said.

Late last spring, Chieftain loaded equipment on barges to be transported up the river to the mine site. A few loads made it, but the rest were stymied by low water and bad weather.

While Boyle has said the Taku River is too undependable, some task force observers, including Chris Zimmer of Rivers without Borders, interpret the email as implying “there might be a barge transportation contingency plan if the road doesn’t work.”

Boyle said his message has been consistent.

“I just wanted to clarify to people the use of the term ‘financing is conditional.’ The way it lands for me is we have the financing upon getting the road. Well, the road is part of a project as a whole, it’s not its own little beast on the side here,” Boyle said. “At the end of the day, there’s no project without a road, because barging does not work.”

When Chieftain Metals bought the Tulsequah Chief Mine out of receivership it inherited permits from previous owner Redfern Resources. The most controversial is a road from Atlin, B.C. to the mine, through Taku River First Nations territory.

The company last month submitted a new route to the B.C. provincial and Canadian environmental assessment agencies. It avoids many of the most contentious places, and is within an area included in a land use agreement signed last summer between the B.C. government and the Taku River Tlingit.

The final application is due soon, then the B.C. government will take public comments on the road. Boyle is hopeful environmental regulators will grant the permit sometime in the next few months.

Representatives for the Taku River Tlingit have not responded to reporters’ phone calls regarding the road.

In the meantime, Chieftain still plans to barge loads up the Taku River beginning in late May, as water levels permit. He also told the task force in January that the company would barge its last loads to the site this summer.

“That’s still the plan, to get equipment to site so we could start building a road this summer,” Boyle said.

 

Task force to stay in place
The Taku River Fact Finding Task Force final report may not be the end of the group’s work.

Even if Tulsequah gets its permits and a road is built, a separate company has plans to open a mine at the headwaters of the international river.

Task Force member Richard Yamada, representing charter fishermen, says he’s less concerned about the impacts of summer barging than future development on the B.C. side of the river. Alaska has no jurisdiction over Canadian projects.

“What’s happening above the river probably in the long term is going to have a greater risk and we need to get some kind of control over that, or some understanding about what kind of risk it presents us,” Yamada said.

Though the task force has answered the initial questions presented when it was created by Juneau’s legislative delegation, it has not disbanded.

Members said they would be willing to stay together for future discussions on the Taku River.

Taku Task Force completes draft report on Tulsequah Chief Mine facts

KINY

 

A final draft report has been submitted to Juneau's legislative delegation by the Taku River Task Force. 

The panel was formed by the local delegation to gather facts on the impact the Tulsequah Chief Mine in British Columbia will have on the Taku River and the salmon run there. 

When asked about the next step during a meeting Saturday, Juneau Senator Dennis Egan said he didn't know.

He says it’s possible the state's congressional delegation may need to get involved in the effort to win trans boundary issues with Canada. 

Kevin Ritchie, who acted as coordinator during the process, says the process has provided a basic set of facts on the issue. 

In addition, he says the legislative delegation now has a group of knowledgeable people it can call on as the process proceeds. 

Chieftain Mines has said that it plans to build a road to transport ore to Skagway rather than barging it down the Taku River. 

Company President Keith Boyle told the task force the project cannot be financed with a barging system that cannot deliver product to market. 

Although he added that financing is not conditioned on a road. 

The company has said barging would be used during the construction phase. 

Kevin Ritchie, who acted as coordinator during the process, says the process has provided a basic set of facts on the issue. 

In addition, he says the legislative delegation now has a group of knowledgeable people it can call on as the process proceeds.

Chieftain Metals answers questions about mine reopening
Representatives of the developer of the Tulsequah Chief Mine in British Columbia were peppered with questions about the potential impact of the project on the Taku River during a meeting of the Taku River Task Force Saturday morning. 

One of the top concerns of local Juneau fishermen were original plans that called for barging concentrates from the mine down the river to Taku Inlet via Juneau as they headed to Skagway for shipment overseas.

The plan now by Chieftain Metals is to build a road to ship the ore to Skagway.

The company's Keith Boyle was asked about that decision. He said they determined barging was impractical.

He said it had nothing to do with the salmon run on the river, but rather bankers refusing to finance the project if barges were used.

The company's plan calls to starting construction this summer.

The task force was created by Juneau's legislative delegation to examine the potential impact the reopening of mine would have on the river and the salmon run there.

More meetings are planned prior to the panel wrapping up its work.

Taku River Tlingit, B.C. agree to land use plan in Atlin Taku area

6/24/11..From KINY News

New Tulsequah Mine developer wants to start construction mid-2012
Plans to reopen the Tulsequah Chief Mine, 13 miles upstream of the Taku River and 40 miles northeast of Juneau, are back on again.

The new owner, Chieftain Metals, Incorporated, says a preliminary economic assessment just completed, indicates the project is  economically viable.

The assessment completed by SRK Consulting, Incorporated, of Canada, identified improved potential through the addition of historical reserves, construction of a hydro facility nearby, improvements in metallurgical recovery, and addition of the Big Bull Satellite deposit.

Chieftain intends to evaluate that deposit as part of an upcoming feasibility study.

The assessment is based on access to the site via a road from Atlin, British Columbia. It's assumed metal concentrates will be shipped by truck to Skagway. They will then be loaded from the Alaska Industrial and Export Authority terminal there onto bulk concentrate ships for shipment to smelters in Asia.

The company acknowledges concerns by the Taku River Tlingit First Nation about the road and says it's in discussions to come to an agreement on access . In the interim.  it has put on hold the transfer of the special use permit of the existing permitted road.

The previous owner, Redfern Resources, had proposed barging the concentrates down the Taku River through Juneau to Skagway.

The company has received most of the permits, licenses, and authorizations previously issued to Redfern which went bankrupt in March of 2009.

Chieftan's goal is to start construction in mid-2012.

It has initiated its operations plan by transporting heavy machinery and equipment by barge to the site.

Commercial fishermen on this side of the border are concerned about the impact of the mine's operation on the valuable Taku fishing grounds.


The mine, according to Canadian environmental officials, leaks sulfuric acid into the Tulsequah River which flows into the Taku River and into Southeast Alaska.

In 2005, Canadian federal officials released a draft report in which it concluded that no significant environment impacts were found.

The regulations are expected to remain in effect through Wednesday, June 30th.

Resident anglers will have a bag and possession limit of three king salmon, 28 inches or greater in length;

Nonresident anglers will have a bag and possession limit of two king salmon, 28 inches or greater in length;

The nonresident annual limit will be five king salmon, 28 inches or greater in length;
-----
Sport fishing for king salmon, may be conducted with the use of two rods per angler.

That applies to charter and private vessels.

However, no more than six lines may be fished from any sport vessel in Southeast Alaska;

The salt waters of Taku Inlet, north of a line extending from Cooper Point to the mouth of Dorothy Creek, that are closed to the

taking of king salmon from April 16-June 14, will be open

to king salmon fishing;
