LeJac Camp & Decommissioning
Client: Nadleh Whut'en First Nation
Location: Seaspunket IR#4, BC
Working with Thompson Creek Metals and Nadleh Whut’en First Nation, Radloff designed a temporary camp to accommodate up to 300 employees of Endako Mines. This project represents a collaborative effort between industrial and First Nations interests in the area and poses economic diversification for Nadleh Whut’en. The lifespan of the facility was short-term; therefore options for servicing this facility were presented with these constraints in mind, while also taking into consideration the long term water and sewer options for the community. Servicing details for the site included roads and parking areas, storm, water/fire, sewer, and power. Radloff provided operations oversight for completed works. When it was determined that the camp was no longer required, Thompson Creek Metals retained Radloff to present options for decommissioning the site, based on permit requirements. An agreement was reached between Thompson Creek and Nadleh Whut’en that saw the site reverted back to a farmable state while retaining underground infrastructure for future camp use.
