Meet Quain Sulin - Environmental Monitor, Blackwater Mine
March 6, 2023
Did you know we currently employ two Environmental Monitors at the Blackwater Mine site to represent the environmental interests of Lhoosk'uz Dené and Ulkatcho First Nations? Learn more from Ulkatcho member, Quain Sulin, about his experience being an Environmental Monitor at our site.
"Dahooja, my name is Quain Sulin.
I am the representative for Ulkatcho First Nation as an Environmental Monitor at the Blackwater Mine site working with both Ulkatcho First Nation and Artemis Gold Inc.
I have been with the Environment Department since October 24, 2022. I have completed two courses while working here, Emergency Response Training and an Environmental Monitoring for Construction Projects Practitioner course.
I have been getting hands on experience in the field and learning about the role of an Environmental Monitor on site which includes Erosion and Sediment Controls, site inspections, and monitoring wildlife sightings.
We have upcoming programs including Fisheries work; Kokanee spawning; wetland off-setting; wildlife surveys; road clearing; and transmission line clearing."
