Estimated quantities of waste metals destined for the Chalk River Mound

February 2022

This is Table 11, excerpted from CNL’s “Waste Acceptance Criteria” document for the Chalk River Mound (“NSDF”)

These quantities of waste metals ( 300+ tonnes of aluminum, 3,500 tonnes of Copper, close to 2,000 tonnes of iron and 200 tonnes of lead) create serious risks of scavenging after the institutional control period for the mound ends; however the CNSC’s EA report is silent on this risk.

The source document, Waste Acceptance Criteria, version 4, can be accessed here: Waste Acceptance Criteria, Version 4
