The Land Access Process in this area is one of the next steps in our site investigation work, which will include activities like borehole drilling and environmental monitoring.
We are inviting landowners in this area to express their interest in potentially entering into an option agreement. These agreements will give us the ability to study the land and subsurface, and if it is selected as a preferred repository site, to purchase it in the future.
Optioning the land will provide two important assurances: the knowledge we can acquire sufficient land for the repository in the future and the ability to continue site investigation work.
Similar work is underway in other siting areas as well, although the process for accessing land there is slightly different as their potential repository sites are located on Crown land.
