KAMLOOPS — Tonight marks another important step in the Ajax mine timeline. The BC Environmental Assessment Office, as well as representatives from the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency will be at the Coast Hotel and Conference Centre this evening, as part of the first set of information sessions regarding the project.

Tracy James, with the BC EAO, says the sessions will give city residents an opportunity to learn some of the details about the proposed mine, while allowing the agencies to compile more feedback from the public. "We'll be talking about air quality, and water quality. Tailings. Human health," James told CFJC News, in an interview this afternoon. "The presentations will be short, 20 to 25 minutes, and then ther'll be a moderated question and answer period for each one of them."

The sessions began tonight at 4:00pm and run until 10pm. Tomorrow's sessions (January 17th) begin at noon until 6pm.
