About this map: 

These natural lakes and streams have been or are at risk of being "re-classified" as waste dumps for the mining industry. This is possible to thanks to Schedule 2 of the Metal Mining Effluent Regulations which was added in 2002. The first listings were used to grandfather ongoing operations but since 2006 it has been used to condemn pristine lakes and streams. Colour code for markers: yellow are original listings from 2002, purple are lakes that have been listed since 2002, red are in the process of being listed and blue were at risk but have been saved by citizen action and environmental reviews.www.miningwatch.ca
