Climate change poses challenges for BC’s natural resource sectors, including the mining sector.
Extreme weather events such as heavy precipitation, flood, fire or drought can trigger changes in soil or slope stability. This can pose risks at both open and closed mines: for the integrity of buildings, water retention structures and tailing ponds, site access, worker safety and transportation networks. Changes in hydrology may also diminish water supply in summer months.
There is growing recognition in the mining industry of the need to access the best climate change trends available by region, evaluate the risks, and weigh adaptation options.
