A review of the Giant Mine remediation project is critiquing the long term plan to contain arsenic at the former gold mine.

The Giant Mine Oversight Board urges the Federal Government to respond to requests of Indigenous groups for an apology and compensation related to the Giant Mine operations.

Suggestions also include making a five year plan that is available to the public and taking the time to better understand traditional values.

According to the review, more information is needed on the environmental hazards of the clean up project.

The Giant Mine Oversight Board says that engaging with the general public and with future generations are the focus of 2017.
