Malahat First Nation looks to double existing quarry production

December 16, 2022  By Times Colonist

The Malahat First Nation’s plan to expand its foreshore lease at Bamberton, B.C. on the Saanich Inlet is on hold while the province considers if the project should undergo an environmental assessment.

The province’s Environmental Assessment Office is considering an application submitted last month by the Saanich Inlet Protection Society for an environmental review of expansion of the lease, and of a quarry on the Bamberton site.

The Malahat First Nation intends to expand the area of its existing quarry and nearly double its annual production, as well as increasing its foreshore lease to allow it to expand industrial operations along Saanich Inlet.
