Tour Overview

Now a historic mine site in British Columbia, the Britannia Mine was a once an operational, large-scale copper mine in the early 1900’s. When mining operations were at their peak, acid rock drainage became a significant environmental impact to surrounding waterways. Attendees will learn about the history of the mine, the significance of acid rock drainage and the heavy metal removal technologies used at EPCOR’s Britannia Mine Water Treatment Plant, as part of remediation activities.
