Nacho Nyak Dun and YG Agree on Way Forward on ATAC Resource Roads

    A Planning Committee will be formed to address land use and access road plans.

    The First Nation of Nacho Nyak Dun and the Yukon Government say they have come to an agreement, which could lead to the construction of an all-season hauling road by ATAC Resources to their mineral exploration site north of Mayo.

    Yet a land use plan for a portion of the Stewart River watershed and a road access management plan will need to be completed for construction begins.

    These requirements will ensure that the road has minimal disruption to the environment and can mitigate impacts to treaty and Aboriginal rights.

    A Planning Committee will be established for the land use and road access plans. The Planning Committee is expected to submit a land use plan within two years.
