A Joint Environmental Review of a Proposed Frack Sand Mining Operation in Manitoba.

Canadian Premium Sand (formerly Claim Post Resources Inc.) is proposing a frack sand mining operation in Northeastern Manitoba and once fully operational the proposed mine will be extracting approximately 1 to 2 million tons of frack sand per year for 8.5 to 18 years.

The proposed frack sand mining operation, once fully operational, will have a number of adverse health effects to those living near and or working at the proposed mining location. The proposed mining operation may effect Section 35 Rights and also have adverse impacts along any proposed route the company intends to haul its processed frack sand from the location of the mine to Winnipeg.

Based on similar frack sand mines in operation in the United States, there is a potential that 500 trucks per day will be required to transport processed frack sand from the proposed mine location to Winnipeg, to be then transported by rail to markets throughout North America.

The adverse effects are especially so if the company determines that Hwy. 59 is the preferred route, as there are tens of thousands who travel to and from the East Beaches communities on the East side of Lake Winnipeg throughout the summer months to enjoy their summer properties and even more who come to enjoy the various beaches in the region for the day.

Therefore, with the potential adverse effects to human health, possible impacts to Section 35 Rights and for expected increases in traffic fatalities and accidents due to the potential increase in traffic flow, we are requesting that the Federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change and the Manitoba Minister of Sustainable Development undertake a joint federal/provincial environmental panel review process with respect to this proposed frack mining operation in accordance with the Canada - Manitoba Agreement on Environmental Assessment Cooperation.
