Arlene Laudrum honoured with Geoscientists Fellowship

Arlene Laudrum honoured as Fellow of Geoscientists of Canada for dedication to Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy, and Petroleum and expertise in arctic environmental support.  VANCOUVER – FEBRUARY 18, 2014 – It is with pleasure that SRK Consulting announces Arlene Laudrum’s naming as a Fellow of Geoscientists Canada.

Fellowship awards recognize “individual professional geoscientists and others who have given noteworthy service to the profession of Geoscience”. Arlene’s service contributions include long-term involvement with local branches of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy, and Petroleum (CIM), most recently as treasurer of the Yellowknife branch.

As the leading technical society of professionals in the Canadian minerals industry, the CIM has afforded Arlene many opportunities to exchange technical knowledge during her 24 years of membership.

“It is important for me to contribute to the CIM by helping facilitate professional development and industry networking opportunities within my local community,” she said.

Arlene enhances the services offered by SRK’s Yellowknife office with her broad experience in mining, exploration and environmental management. For the past 15 years, she has focused on the environmental management of projects from exploration to post-closure. Much of this work has involved providing environmental support for the engineering, construction, and closure of mines in the arctic. Arlene’s earlier experience includes mine geology; resource and reserve evaluation; mine planning and environmental monitoring at an underground copper nickel mine and an open pit heap leach gold mine; and gold, base metal, and diamond exploration.

From 2002 to 2008, Arlene managed the remediation programs at the Polaris (75° N) and Nanisivik (73° N) mine sites during their closure and post-closure phases. In 2011, the Nanisivik mine owners engaged Arlene to oversee the demolition and reclamation of the remaining infrastructure at the Nanisivik dock site.

SRK’s clients benefit from Arlene’s in-depth knowledge of the physical, regulatory, and social environment of the Canadian  north when undertaking environmental studies, applying for operating permits, conducting due diligence reviews, and preparing NI 43-101 Technical Reports.
