Huron-Kinloss Nuclear

Township of Huron-Kinloss Phase 2 Field Studies

Consideration for Test Borehole Sites

The Township of Huron-Kinloss has approved in principle a plan to explore the feasibility of NWMO drilling an initial borehole on municipally held lands as part of Phase 2 Field Studies, and has prepared a map of some municipal land holdings which might be considered.  
The NWMO is currently developing a plan for Phase 2 Field Studies which will be reviewed by Council and then will be the subject of open houses and other engagement activities and discussions with community members.  Note that the purpose of this initial borehole is to better understand regional geology at this very early phase of study.


Learn more about the Initial Borehole Drilling and Testing in Huron-Kinloss. This NWMO publication is in draft form and comments are welcome.
