The Ike deposit of Amarc Resources Ltd. Looking over the deposit to the Northwest. AMARC R.

SHAREADJUSTCOMMENTPRINTAbove the tree line on a mountain in the Southern Interior is a spot most people have never heard of, but is increasingly the centre of attention for a mining exploration company and communities of the Tsilhqot’inIt is a mineral claim being prospected by the Vancouver-headquartered company Amarc Resources Ltd. And the property is already spoken of in glowing terms for resembling the mineralization that formed the basis of Teck Resources Ltd.’s mighty Highland Valley copper mine.

However, the property known as Ike is also in the last place that the Tsilhqot’in communities want a mine.

The location is above the watersheds of the Taseko and Chilcotin rivers and not that distant from Fish Lake (known to the Tsilhqot’in as Teztan Biny), where the First Nation fought a decades-long battle against the Prosperity and then New Prosperity mine proposals of Taseko Mines Ltd.

Peatlands are one of the staples of the boreal forest that sweeps across Canada. The 185 billion tonnes of mossy wetlands across the country can act as firebreaks, literally dampening the flames as they move across the landscape.

At COP 21Ban Ki Moon, in Paris, urged states to negotiate with a global vision not with national vested interests (Cop21 press conference)

A global vision  would be to address article 2 and at a minimum to immediately end all subsidies for fossil fuel, to calculate the carbon budget for each state, to divest in fossil fuels and to reinvest in renewable energy, to conserve sinks -such as old growth forests and bogs, to strengthen conservation of  biodiversity, to avoid all false solutions such as nuclear, geo-engineering and biofuels which would all violate principles within the UNFCCC, to compensate for historical  emissions, and to institute a fair and just transitasion for workers affected negatively by the new vision.  and to promote nature based solutions  and socially equitablh and enviromentally sound suchas solar, wind, tidal, and geothermal

 

 

 

SUMMARY

.A. SUBMISSION TO COP21

B POST MORTEM OF  COP21SYSTEMIC CONSTRAINTS PREVENTING THE COMMITMENT TO URGENCY

C. ALL STATES SHOULD ACT ON FULFILLING SDG 13 AND BAN KI MOON CALL FOR

NEGOTIATING WITH A GLOBAL VISION

 

.A.

SUBMISSION TO COP21
