Prior to submitting the Plan of Operations Modification, the Company retained experts to perform extensive environmental baseline studies of the Relief Canyon project area including hydrogeologic investigations, plant and wildlife surveys, cultural resources surveys, pit slope stability studies, and geochemical tests to characterize the rocks to be mined.
The objectives of the present study were (1) to characterize the distribution of background levels of dissolved methane in well water in the on-shore Carboniferous and Triassic sedimentary basins of Nova Scotia using hydrogeologic and landscape criteria; and (2) to analyze dissolve methane patterns using a variety of statistical techniques to better understand the factors influencing the observed distribution.
