    Dear Peter Unger:

    The Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB or Board) is hereby releasing its 2017-18 Annual Monitoring Report for Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd.’s (Agnico Eagle) Meadowbank Gold Project (NIRB File No. 03MN107) and the Whale Tail Pit Project (NIRB File No. 16MN056). The enclosed Monitoring Report is based on the NIRB’s monitoring activities as set out within Section 12.7 of the Agreement between the Inuit of the Nunavut Settlement Area and Her Majesty the Queen in right of Canada and s. 135 of the Nunavut Planning and Project Assessment Act, S.C. 2013, c. 14, s. 2 and the associated Project Certificates. This report provides findings that resulted from monitoring of the Meadowbank Gold Mine Project from October 2017 to September 2018 and the Whale Tail Pit Project from March 2018 to September 2018.

    Based upon the Board’s review of the monitoring report and other materials related to the Whale Tail Pit Project, the Board has issued the following recommendation to Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) in order to assist in achieving compliance with the Whale Tail Pit Project Certificate No. 008. The Board requests that for items requiring follow-up action by NRCan that a response be provided within the timeline as requested for each of the recommendations.

    All materials pertaining to the NIRB’s ongoing Monitoring program for the Whale Tail Pit Project can be accessed online from the NIRB’s online public registry at www.nirb.ca/project/124683.
