The environmental baseline monitoring study crafted by Idaho CuMo Mining Corporation’s scientific experts includes extensive research of avian species, aquatic species, invertebrates, groundwater and meteorology. ICMC exceeds industry standards by extending the study area beyond the customary radius of five miles and has proposed to conduct studies in a radius up-to ten miles from the roject site.
The first step of the study is to establish the current conditions of water, air and soil. Studying and documenting the current conditions will provide a clear understanding of the impacts of historical mining practices which exist in the region. ICMC considers remediation and restoration of historic mining environmental impacts to be a vital part the overall development plan.
