On June 1st, 2018, Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) released the final version of the Metal Mining Effluent Regulations (MMER). This is the first extensive update to the MMER since they were conceived in 2002. The updated regulations have new or more restrictive limits for key contaminants of concern to many mining operations in Canada. These include un-ionized ammonia, arsenic, cyanide, lead, and others. As well, protocols for evaluating the toxicity of effluents being discharged to saline waters have been incorporated into the new regulation.
Attend our webinar to learn how changing effluent regulations in Canada can help mine sites reach new limits.
This session will highlight:
- What are the impacts of the new regulations on monitoring programs at mine sites?
- How to achieve the new regulatory standards – The need for laboratory analyses at ultra-trace levels.
- Field sampling challenges to ensure reliable and defensible laboratory data at ultra-trace levels.
