Mountain Ash Limited Partnership (MALP) submitted its Code of Practice for Pits (COP) application to Alberta Environment (AE) in spring 2021. Following the province’s internal review of the application, it has now been circulated to stakeholders. To review the CPP reports, please visit the Resources tab. All reports are subject to change based on comments received back from the review process.

The purpose of the COP is to address registration and operational requirements such as activities planned at the site, soil conservation, reclamation, reclamation security and reclamation certification, reporting and record keeping, among other items.

For questions about the COP, please get in touch. To review the COP and supporting materials, please click here.

On July 13, 2021, Mountain Ash Limited Partnership (MALP) received approval from Rocky View County (RVC) Council for its Development Permit (DP) application for the Summit Project. The DP includes technical details about the phased development of the project and can be viewed on the Resources tab , under the ‘Development Permit Application Materials’ heading.

As part of the DP, MALP developed a Good Neighbour Action Plan (GNAP) which is still subject to future review and approval from RVC Council. The intent of the GNAP is to provide information about the project and establish methods for ongoing communication between MALP and the surrounding residents, businesses and other stakeholder groups situated within a ±1.6 km (±1 mile) radius of the Project site. Once complete, the GNAP will be linked to the website.

In April 2021, Mountain Ash Limited Partnership (“MALP”) submitted a Development Permit (“DP”) application to Rocky View County, which is currently under review with a decision expected in July of 2021.

MALP kicked-off a public engagement approach as part of its DP application process in March 2021. The objective of the approach was to work with the local community to address questions, concerns, or comments related to the DP. Our approach included a mailing to landowners within 1,600 m of the site, and key stakeholder organizations, to provide a project update and offer the opportunity for a virtual meeting to respond to any questions or concerns, email correspondence, and telephone and virtual meetings.

A primary component of the engagement approach has been to offer landowners within an 800 m radius of the subject site the opportunity to participate in a well monitoring program administered by MALP. Five landowners have agreed to participate in the program which will result in the installation of five monitoring stations in addition to the 11 stations installed within the subject site.

In total, MALP has participated in numerous email exchanges and 10 virtual meetings and phone calls with interested landowners and stakeholder organizations, at which 33 individuals were registered to participate.

Mountain Ash Limited Partnership (MALP) received approval from Rocky View County Council for its Land Use Amendment application and Master Site Development Plan for the Summit Pit project on Tuesday, March 2, 2021. As the next step in the process, MALP will develop and submit a Development Permit (DP) application and a Code of Practice for Pits (CPP) for approval.

As the project evolves, we are committed to working with the local community to identify and address concerns and interests through mitigation measures. We appreciate the time and effort given by the community so far, and we hope to continue to work together to design a safe, responsible operation.

MALP intends to submit its DP and CPP applications prior to summer 2021, and we want to hear from you. We invite you to get in touch to discuss your questions, comments and ideas related to the proposed operations at Summit. Our team is available to meet with you over the phone, or by video conference.

The Summit Project is going before Rocky View County Council for a Public Hearing on March 2, 2021. The agenda can be found here.
