Merlin asks what kind of impact the dust from the road has had on the environment and what will happen if baffinland starts to stock pile iron ore at the shore what kind of plan they have for the oxidation of the ore.
on the map, you see the North Transportation corridor, the road that is being used and the railroad. Based on the studies that were done, what are the impacts on the wildlife around the transportation routes, by the dust, today? What will it be when it will be increased by an additional 25-30%?
When they stockpile the iron, usually iron oxidizes and leaks into the environment, so what is the plan for that? How much is that going to happen? There is going to be a lot of iron stockpiled, so this means a lot of oxidation for the environment and wildlife.
