TheÂ MatoushÂ UraniumÂ ExplorationÂ projectÂ is actually reviewed underÂ theÂ section 22 ofÂ theÂ JBNQA.Â TheÂ Provincial and Federal Review Committees have recently finished their Conformity Analysis ofÂ theÂ Environmental and Social Impacts Study (all proponent documents are available onÂ theÂ CEAA website:Â http://www.ceaa-acee.gc.ca/default.asp?lang=En&n=1ED9DF1A-1). In order to supportÂ theÂ two members appointed byÂ theÂ CRA on each of these panels,Â theÂ CRA has decided to require anÂ external analysis. Three reports were delivered a few month ago, but have remained confidential untilÂ theÂ publication ofÂ theÂ Review Committees Conformity Analysis.Â TheÂ CRA may now publish these three reportsÂ which support its analysis ofÂ theÂ impact study. These reports may helpÂ theÂ Crees to reviewÂ theÂ projectÂ in preparation forÂ theÂ next public hearings that should be held next autumn.
