KAMLOOPS - Mark you calendars for Nov. 25 and 26 if you have questions about how the environmental assessment process works.

At the request of Kamloops residents, the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency are hosting public workshops on the assessment process.

Environmental Assessment 101 will explain what happens in the assessment process, how the public can participate and what happens after an assessment. Staff will also be on hand to answer any questions.

Three workshops will be held each day at the Coast Hotel and Conference Centre on Rogers Way. The hour-long sessions will run at 3 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. Nov. 25 and 26 and participation is on a first-come first-served basis.

Additional staff and KGHM Ajax Mining Inc. representatives will also be on site, in the Ballroom, to answer questions specific to the proposed mine.

The province agreed to the additional information session after persistence from city council. A second public input session was also approved for the application requirements after the proponent changed the footprint of the mine earlier this year. The public input session began this week and runs until Dec. 18.
