Ottawa-based cleantech company BluMetric Environmental Inc. has won two new environmental engineering services contracts worth more than $2.5 million to conduct remediation for an unnamed major mining company.

The clean-up project aims to determine environmental concern within surface water and groundwater for a series of mining sites in northern Ontario. These contracts, over one year, will see the application of technically innovative site investigation methods such as airborne geophysical surveying and hydrological and hydrogeological numerical flow modeling.

“These new contracts represent a continuation of WESA's long history of working successfully with mining companies, providing progressive environmental engineering solutions,” said Nell van Walsum, president of BluMetric's Professional Services Division, who addressed the contracts in a statement. 

In mid-November 2013 BluMetric appointed its chief corporate development officer and director Roger Woeller as caretaker CEO while current chief executive Bill Touzel addressed “personal matters.”

“We have been focused on expanding our service offering and applying technologies, such as remote sensing and advanced modeling techniques, that have enabled us to broaden our usefulness to our valued clients in this sector and others,” added van Walsum.
