OTTAWA, July 18, 2013 /CNW/ - BluMetric Environmental Inc. (TSXV: BLM) is pleased to announce that it has initiated work on three separate projects for Vale (NYSE: VALE), which is currently making a major investment in the Sudbury basin, aimed at re-building and modernizing assets, reducing emissions, extending the life of existing mines, and finding new sources of ore. BluMetric's services will include detailed environmental characterization, groundwater and surface water science and engineering, and conceptual solution development.
"Vale's strong commitment to best practices in environmental management taps into several areas of BluMetric's expertise, from groundwater science and engineering to site enhancement strategies," said Nell van Walsum, President of BluMetric's Professional Services Division. "Given that we currently work with many of the operating mines and plants in Sudbury, our focus there is expanding our service offering and, with Vale, broadening our involvement in all levels of their process, from problem definition and analysis, through developing detailed engineering approaches, to construction drawing and execution."
"In Sudbury, with its long history of mining, there are opportunities for development which Vale is energetically addressing with its ongoing investment in the regional environment," said BluMetric's CEO, William Touzel. "BluMetric is well-suited to this type of work, and in fact is one of the only players with the range of technical knowledge and expertise needed for the hydrogeological and hydrological complexity of these projects."
