One of the first campaigns I worked on as a young environmental lawyer was an effort to protect B.C.'s Tatshenshini River from a proposed open-pit copper mine at Windy Craggy Mountain. The Tat is located in the farthest reaches of northwest B.C., next to the Yukon's Kluane National Park and Alaska's Glacier Bay and Wrangell–St. Elias national.

  The proposed Windy Craggy mine at the headwaters of the Tatsenshini River (that eventually flows into Alaska) was so potentially polluting it was finally stopped by the BC Govt to much derision from the Cdn mining industry. A very earthquake prone area, the WC mine was meant to tunnel under a glacier and basically remove the top of a mountain. Environmentalists welcome huge new wilderness preserve next to Alaskan panhandle for hikers and grizzlies.

The Windy Craggy Cu-Co-Au massive sulfide deposit is located at 59°44' N latitude and °44' W longitude in the extremely rugged and glaciated terrain of the Alsek-Tatshenshini River area of the St. Elias Mountains, in the northwestern corner of British Columbia (Fig.

The deposit crops out on Windy Peak at an elevation of 2, m. The Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources placed a value of $15 billion on metal contained in the Windy Craggy deposit.

Geddes Re-sources’ estimate was $ billion. (These figures are based on the probable and proven reserves without taking into consideration the extensions and indicated reserves of Windy Craggy). The Windy Craggy massive sulphide Copper, Cobalt, Gold, Silver, Zinc deposit is located in the Atlin district of far northwest British Columbia, Canada (#Location: 59° 44' 09" N, ° 44' 37" W).

It lies within the allochthonous Alexander terrane which comprises a thick succession of complexly deformed Proterozoic to Permian basinal and platformal carbonate and clastic rocks with a. issue, with a mine site proposed in British Columbia and a portsite in Alaska.

EXCEPTIONAL ACID MINE DRAINAGE MADE WINDY CRAGGY ENVIRONMENTALLY UNSAFE The Windy Craggy project was the most environmentally hazardous mining project ever proposed in Canada, due to the fact that the ore was on average 35% sulphide.

-Under Geddes Resources, this company spent $50 million strictly on exploitation. -No one, whether it be company workers or investors, will expect to see their money return to their pockets as this massive copper reserve is now a United Nations World Heritage Site.

Torrens Mining Ltd. is considering listing the highly prospective Laloki copper project in Papua New Guinea in with additional investment attraction from exploration potential close to the famed Fosterville gold mine in Victoria, Australia. The company proposed an open pit mine for the top of Windy Craggy followed in a decade by an under- ground mine.

Construction of a km road from the Haines Highway to Windy Craggy would be necessary to provide access to the mine site, and bridges would have to be built over the Tatshenshini River and Tat creek. Tatshenshini-Alsek Park or Tatshenshini-Alsek Provincial Wilderness Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada 9, km 2 (3, sq mi).

It was established in after an intensive campaign by Canadian and American conservation organizations to halt mining exploration and development in the area, and protect the area for its strong natural heritage and biodiversity values.

News Novem Geddes set for action at big Windy Craggy bet The big but remote Windy Craggy copper-cobalt property of Geddes Resources in northwestern B.C. has attracted a lot of attention over the past few years but, so far, little money for development.

In mid, Geddes Resources Limited of Vancouver pushed for a permit to pulverize the top 2, feet of Windy Craggy then gouge its nub into a mammoth, open-pit mine. This meant excavating a staggering million cubic feet of rock by gnawing 60 million pounds off the mountain daily for fifteen years and piping it as slurry miles to port in Haines.
