The first meeting was held in Likely, the community most impacted when disaster struck at the open pit gold and copper mine last August and a design fault resulted in the tailings pond breaching its dam.
The Williams Lake open house is set for next Wednesday evening, April 22nd, between 6:30pm and 8:30pm in the Gibraltar Room of the Cariboo Memorial Rec Complex. Mount Polley officials say representatives from the regional, provincial and federal government have also been invited to attend.
A decision on the permit applications is expected to come in early June.
