Quarry Development Plan (pdf/736.13 KB)

Description: 

The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) Department of Lands (Lands) has developed this template of a Quarry Development Plan (QDP) for the Northwest Territories to identify the information required to efficiently process quarry permit applications and to apply consistent standards to the design and operation of quarries.

A Quarry Development Plan is to describe the design and operation of the quarry from initial development through to final reclamation. A QDP is intended to be complementary, not duplicative, to the terms and conditions contained in regulatory authorizations (licences or permits).
