EcoLogic assisted with landform creation and closure planning of a De Beers mine in the James Bay region of northern Ontario. The project involved mapping the existing terrain, soils, and ecosystems of the area to assess the quality of available reclamation materials, and modelling landforms that could feasibly be created given the anticipated hydrology of the site after closure. Vegetation was selected to ensure appropriate ecosystems were established following mine closure.

Key Features:

In 2019, De Beers is continuing with the successful re-vegetation and reclamation of the mine site.
