Sudbury Soils Study
Posted June 10, 2003 5:48:54 PM


SUDBURY, June 9, 2003 – On Wednesday, June 11th 2003 the public is invited to a Sudbury Soils Study Open House at Science North’s Inco Cavern. Open House hours are from 3:00 PM to 8:00 PM. The Open House is part of the launch of the two-year long study that is evaluating the potential for human health and ecological effects of metals found in Sudbury area soils.

The Sudbury Soils Study builds on the tradition of Sudbury’s award-winning regreening program, as residents of Sudbury work together to improve their community and environment. “This is an informal Open House where people can drop-in to discuss the study directly with the researchers and partners,” said Chris Wren, director of the SARA Group which is conducting the study. “It’s also a chance for people who participated in our recent “Have Your Say” Workshops to see how their input has helped focus the study on things people in Sudbury really want us to look at.”

Open house participants can park at Science North for free. Refreshments and light snacks will be available. People interested in attending the Open House can learn more about the study by visiting the website at, or by calling the Sudbury Soils Study toll-free line at 1-866-315-0228.

The Sudbury Soils Study is a community-wide undertaking to accurately measure the levels of various metals in the local environment. It is the most comprehensive and scientifically demanding study of its kind ever done in Canada. Thousands of soil samples have been taken from throughout the region and are being carefully analysed to assess their contents. From these soil assessments, and other research, the community will learn of any risks these elements may pose to human health and/or the health of the environment. Final results are expected early in 2005. Partners in the study include Inco Limited, Falconbridge Limited, The Ontario Ministry of Environment, The City of Greater Sudbury, The Sudbury & District Health Unit, Health Canada – First Nation and Inuit Health Branch.
