Summary Using a policy review framework developed by OCCIAR, a suite of criteria was modified to evaluate reclamation/remediation/rehabilitation plans and other documents for a) reference to a changing climate, b) the need for increased monitoring, c) specific vulnerabilities to specific weather events, d) thresholds of extreme weather, and, e) adaptive management. All sections of the plans and documents, where climate change could be reflected, and what types of adaptive measure could be employed were captured.
Local Relevance This assessment evaluates reclamation plans of abandoned mines to identify climate change vulnerabilities. This includes Colomac Mine, Discovery Mine, and Tundra Mine in the NWT.
