OTTAWA, July 11, 2013 /CNW/ - BluMetric Environmental Inc. (TSX-V: BLM)
is pleased to announce a new mining-site water management and
remediation project in the Yukon which is expected to exceed $1 million
in revenue over the two-year contract, and which, in combination with
other new projects in the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut,
will bring the company's total fees in the northern territories this
year to more than $1.5 million, representing a 50% increase over last
year's cumulative work in that region. This particular project involves
not only working to minimize or negate groundwater and surface water
contamination but to manage the complex interrelationships among all
the players involved.
"We are increasingly recognized both for our ability to handle highly
complex water treatment and management problems and for our project
management and stakeholder relationship skills," said Nell van Walsum,
President of BluMetric's Professional Services Division. "Our work in
the north, for a wide variety of government and commercial clients, has
ranged from mining-site remediation to contaminant management on
demolition sites to infrastructure assessment relating to industrial
hygiene, health and safety."
"We are beginning to benefit from situations in which the Water and
Professional Services Divisions are actively working together on
complex projects," said BluMetric's CEO, William Touzel. "The
symbiotic relationship we anticipated as a result of our merger is
especially visible in longer-term projects, and should continue to
strengthen as we broaden our service reach in the north."
BluMetric delivers sustainable solutions to complex environmental
issues. The Company serves clients in many industrial sectors, and at
all levels of government, in Canada and abroad.
BluMetric operates through two divisions:
