ADVANCE NOTICE TO INDUSTRY

PRE TENDER OPTIONAL SITE VISIT AND INFORMATION SESSION FOR
POTENTIAL BIDDERS

Public Works & Government Services Canada (PWGSC) on behalf of
Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) is
preparing bid documents and Terms of Reference for the re-tender
of the Interim Underground Stabilization requirement at Giant
Mine, located on the Ingraham Trail just outside of Yellowknife,
Northwest Territories (refer to cancelled Solicitation No.
EW702-131876/A). 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.
