Raglan Mine's Closure Plan Subcommittee brings home the Dean's Research Partner Award!
Memorial University's Dean's Research Partner Award recognizes individuals or organizations that have made a significant contribution to a Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences research project.
The Raglan Mine Closure Plan Subcommittee has significantly supported research, training and engagement activities of Memorial-based faculty and graduate students. [Its work] advances novel approaches to mine closure and reclamation planning that integrates the perspectives and experiences of mine-affected communities, particularly Inuit communities whose lands host mining operations. Working with the sub-committee has resulted in a truly reciprocal and generative partnership with Memorial faculty.
Although the mine is expected to remain operational for several more decades, the Subcommittee was launched to establish and maintain a dialogue with our Inuit partners and to incorporate the communities' traditional knowledge into the closure plan.
