The Kitikmeot Inuit Association (KIA) Board at their meeting of February 9, 2009 unanimously passed a resolution to adopt the Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. (“NTI”) Mining, Uranium, and Reclamation Policies as policies for managing surface Inuit Owned Lands in the Kitikmeot and the Article 41 Lands. The NTI Mining, Uranium, and Reclamation Policies were passed by the NTI Board in 1997, 2007, and 2008, respectively. These Policies will also apply to two parcels of land located outside of Nunavut called the ‘Article 41’ Lands located south of Contwoy to Lake. KIA owns the surface and subsurface of the Article 41 Lands. The KIA Board recently decided to open the Article 41 Lands to exploration.
