Parsons Receives Contract Extension from CIRNAC for Giant Mine Remediation; Jon Moretta Quoted

Parsons Corporation has received a two-year, cost plus, fixed fee contract extension from Public Services and Procurement Canada, on behalf of Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC), the company announced on Wednesday

"For over six years, we have been working closely with the Government of Canada to keep the site in a safe and stable condition until cleanup efforts can begin, in the interests of creating a safer, healthier and prosperous community," said Jon Moretta, industrial executive vice president for Parsons. 

Parsons will serve as the main construction manager for the remediation of the Giant Mine in the Northwest Territories. The company will contain and manage arsenic trioxide pollution at the former gold mine to protect human and environmental health and safety. 

"Environmental sustainability and protection is everyone's responsibility as we try to create a better world, and we're excited that Parsons can play a small role in improving life in Canada as the project shifts into the active remediation phase in the coming years," concluded Moretta. 

Parsons’ initial contract at the site began in 2013 with the decontamination and deconstruction of the mine's roaster complex. Parsons has also provided care maintenance and construction management for CIRNAC at the Faro Mine complex in Yukon Territory.

In addition to the CIRNAC contract, Parsons has been awarded a potential 10-year, $4 billion contract by the Department of Energy (DoE) to perform site services at the DoE’s Hanford facility, the company announced in Dec. 2019.

Parsons will cover infrastructure updates, maintenance efforts and the creation of support infrastructure for the site’s Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant. The team will also oversee the Hazardous Material Management and Emergency Response, or HAMMER, federal training center.
