A report is still forthcoming on the geotechnical drilling that took place for two weeks at the edge of Rossland.

Teck Metals Ltd. undertook geotechnical drilling at the intersection of Highway 3B and Kirkup Avenue in the city from Monday, June 17 through Wednesday, July 3.

“The drilling was undertaken to assess the impact of historic mining operations on the stability of the land beneath the highway,” said Carol Vanelli Worosz, Teck’s

community engagement leader.

The work was part of Teck’s ongoing management of historical mining lands.

Now that the assessment is complete, the Ministry of Transportation and Teck will determine if any further work will be required, said Vanelli Worosz. The report on the results is expected to be received mid-summer.
