Proposed Vee Lake quarry passes first hurdle at city council

March 10, 2020

Cabin Radio - A proposed new quarry to be constructed near Vee Lake cleared its first obstacle on Monday night as Yellowknife city councillors approved two bylaws related to land transfer. The bylaws authorize the City of Yellowknife to acquire land from the territorial government and then lease the same land to Det'on Cho Construction for the quarry. After that, Det'on Cho would have to seek a development permit – returning the process to councillors for further approval. "There is significant public concern from residents of Yellowknife," Silke said, presenting to council. Det'on Cho has pledged to widen the Vee Lake Road and carry out other safety measures if the project goes ahead.

CBC North - The Det'on Cho Corp. said it could provide jobs and profits for about 10 years. The proposed quarry, outlined in white, lies just within city limits off the Vee Lake road. He said Det'on Cho is prepared to go through a process of review and consultation before any rock is touched. Ryan Silke gathered almost 1,000 names on his petition against the proposed quarry. He also suggested city council come up with alternative locations for the Det'on Cho to use.
