Abstract: The overall objective of this predictive wildlife ecological risk assessment (ERA) is to assess contaminant-related risks after implementation of Teck Cominco's closure plan for its Kimberley Operations. The first stage of the wildlife ERA, problem formulation (PF), was conducted to identify the most likely sources of potential risks for the site to help focus subsequent ERA investigations. This paper summarizes key findings of the PF and presents an overview of the main components of the wildlife ERA. A separate paper (Mann et al., 2004) addresses potential risks to the aquatic environment.
