Restauration de sites contaminés
1. Pensez à un site minier abandonné en Nouvelle-Écosse. Imaginez-vous que vous êtes responsable de la vérification et de la décontamination des lieux ainsi que de le rendre sécuritaire pour les humains et les animaux. Quels problèmes pourriez-vous y trouver? Quel est votre plan de restauration du site? Comment le site sera-t-il utilisé une fois que vous aurez terminé et qui l’utilisera?

Bat Habitats

An abandoned mine with the entranced blocked to let bats in and keep humans out. This makes the space safe for bat hibernation. Abandoned mine shafts provide an important habitat for Nova Scotia’s bats during winter hibernation. Bats need very specific environmental and climatic conditions, and need to be in a place where they are undisturbed during the winter.

Accidents miniers d'or

3. Trouvez un article de journal au sujet d’un accident passé survenu dans une mine d’or et comparez-le à un article au sujet d’un accident récent dans une mine d’or. Quelles sont les similarités et les différences au sujet de la façon dont est rapporté l’incident?

The Magill shaft was a 30-year old mine that had not had much maintenance. This meant the wooden supports for the roof of the mine were few and far-between. The result was a cave-in in April 1936.

Débat minières d'or: avantages et inconvénients
4. Un certain nombre de sociétés internationales d’extraction d’or effectuent aujourd’hui des travaux d’exploration minière en Nouvelle-Écosse. Les gens ont des opinions divergentes au sujet des effets positifs ou négatifs de tels travaux. Organisez un débat en classe pour présenter les deux côtés de la médaille. Est-il possible de trouver un terrain d’entente entre les deux côtés?
