Project - YESAB Registry

YESAB review process.


Legislated by the Yukon Environmental and Socio-economic Assessment Act, the Yukon Environmental and Socio-economic Assessment Board (YESAB) oversees the environmental assessment process of proposed development projects in Yukon. That includes potential effects proposed on water, land and habitat in the region.

Casino submitted its proposal to develop the proposed Casino mine in January 2014. On February 18, 2016, after reviewing information submitted by the proponent and all comments submitted by participants, the Executive Committee has determined that the Casino Mine Project requires a Panel Review, the highest level of environmental and socio-economic assessment under YESAA.

YESAB administers a public website to access information about the Casino Mine Panel Review. Information submitted under the previous Executive Committee Process, which, under the Panel Rules, must be considered by the Panel, can be found on the YESAB Online Registry, as Project #2014-0002.

The environmental assessment process to date, and to come under the Panel Review process is detailed below.
