Impact Assessment Lelydorp 1, Para North and Kankantrie North
To implement the projects to use bauxite remnants in the Lelydorp 1, Para North and Kankantrie North Mines, an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) is warranted. The focus of the ESIA will be on mining and the reuse of the current haul road (or the specific use of bauxite transportation route) in the mining area specified. Undertaking the ESIA is the International Consultancy firm Environmental Resources Management (ERM), compliant with Alcoa’s standards and the guidelines of the National Institute for Environment and Development in Suriname (NIMOS).
In compliance with the NIMOS guidelines for impact assessment, Suralco committed itself to execute an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) for the bauxite mine projects Lelydorp 1, Para North and Kankantrie North.
Suralco commissioned ERM to undertake the ESIA. The ESIA will identify and evaluate potential effects of these projects on the environment and the local communities.
Public consultation will take place throughout the ESIA process. ERM will consult public and governmental agencies in many ways during the ESIA process. Below you can download some presentations which were done during public meetings.
Should you have any comment or concern in regards to the projects or have any question regarding the ESIA process, please contact the representatives of ERM or Suralco.
