Barriere Lake recently discovered that Copper One Ltd. plan to pursue mining exploration activities (tree cutting and drilling) on Barriere Lake’s ancestral and current-use Territory. They have demanded that the province cease to issue permits to the mining company or any other mining companies and reiterate their total opposition to any mining or related activity on their territory. Barriere Lake will be asserting their jurisdiction over their territory in peaceful demonstration of their legal responsibilities to protect the land and waters.
