Nordic Mining has started a monitoring program for migrating smolt (juvenile salmon) in adjacent rivers of the Førde Fjord. The program will cover two migration seasons, 2021 and 2022, and secure valuable information of smolt migration prior to production at Engebø. Advanced monitoring equipment has been installed at two representative locations in rivers surrounding the fjord.
“The monitoring program will provide valuable information for production planning to secure minimum impact from operations. This is the first part of a program to monitor that the operation will be in good harmony with the surrounding environment,” says Project Manager Kenneth Nakken Angedal.
Production of rutile and garnet at Engebø is scheduled to start in 2024.
