Prior to posting the Request for Proposal (RFP), PWGSC is conducting an optional site visit for potential bidders who are interested in submitting a proposal for the Interim Underground Stabilization contract at the Giant Mine Site. The intent of the site visit is to provide potential bidders the opportunity to see the site prior to winter conditions as it is anticipated the requirement will be re-tendered this winter, 2013-2014. This Letter of Interest request only describes an anticipated solicitation, provision of a Letter of Interest and attendance at the site visit does not constitute a contract between Canada/PWGSC and the interested bidder. BACKGROUND: Giant Mine has significant underground workings that require remediation as part of the overall Giant Mine Remediation Project. Work on the underground includes: stabilization (particularly in the areas surrounding the arsenic chambers/stopes and under Baker Creek); installation of drift plugs to support bulkheads; as well as new mine development to support the freeze system. A number of geotechnical experts (including AANDC's Technical Advisor, Independent Experts Panel and the Preliminary Design Engineer for the overall Giant Mine Remediation Project), have recommended that many of the areas of geotechnical instability of the underground workings need to be addressed urgently (prior to the completion of the Environmental Assessment and obtaining Effective Project Approval) to protect the health and safety of the public, the mine workers and the environment. AANDC supports advancing this underground remediation work as part of the Site Stabilization Plan (SSP), which was signed by the AANDC Minister in September 2011. This requirement was tendered under Solicitation No. EW702-131876/A in April-May 2013. No contract was awarded as a result of this tender. This requirement will be re-tendered with a significantly modified Terms of Reference currently being developed. OPTIONAL SITE VISIT AND INFORMATION SESSION: It is optional that potential bidders or their representatives visit the work site and attend an information session. The optional site visit and information session will be held on October 9th and 10th, 2013. Bidders must communicate with the Contracting Authority no later than Thursday, October 3rd, 2013 to confirm attendance and provide the names of the person(s) who will attend.

Registered attendees are to meet at the C-Dry Boardroom at the Giant Mine Site, Yellowknife, NT at 1:00 pm.
