Gunnar Mine Site Remediation Project in Northern Saskatchewan
More information about SRC and Project CLEANS: or
The Gunnar Mine site is part of a cleanup project, Project CLEANS (Cleanup of Abandoned Northern Sites), managed by the Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC). Significant progress was made at Gunnar between 2010-2011 - 80 buildings and structures posing health and safety risks were safely taken down. More work remains at the site, including environmental testing and monitoring.
Project CLEANS is a multi-year project that aims to remediate 38 abandoned uranium mine sites in northern Saskatchewan, including Gunnar, the Lorado mill site and 36 satellite sites. The Gunnar Mine site is the most complex of the sites.
