BMC has built on the strong existing relationship that has as its foundation nearly 20 years of consultation and engagement. BMC’s consultation and engagement efforts commenced prior to purchase of the Project and has been maintained through consultation with stakeholders and interested parties during the preparation of the exploration permit application, initiation of the environmental and socio-economic baseline studies and into the project proposal application through the Yukon Environment and Socio-economic Assessment Board (YESAB). The KZK Project Proposal is currently undergoing review with YESAB, the Project is in the Screening stage having passed through Adequacy. Public comments on the Project can be submitted at any stage of the process through the YESAB Online Registry http://www.yesabregistry.ca.
BMC has been in communications with government agencies, First Nations, various stakeholder groups, and interested parties to introduce the company and to engage and consult these parties regarding the proposed Project. This has consisted of numerous meetings with appropriate agencies and Ross River Dena Council leadership, numerous community meetings in Ross River, and several community meetings in each of the towns of Faro, Whitehorse, and Watson Lake. BMC has also produced a quarterly newsletter to keep the local communities abreast of the Projects developments.
BMC is committed to supporting local communities and providing a positive long term legacy. This means:
