Algoma Ore Division, Wawa, Ontario During the past 100 years Iron Ore has been at the heart of life in Wawa. In June of 1998 The McLeod Mine closed and Sintering operations ceased. Denison Environmental Services was awarded the decommissioning project in May of 1998.
In July of 1998, the task of taking down Algoma Steel Inc.'s , Algoma Ore Division was begun in earnest.
In the Spring of 2000, Denison Environmental Services returned to the AOD site to complete the remaining work in the tailings area, with work wrapping up in Wawa by mid-summer.
DES would like to thank Algoma Steel and their site staff for their co-operation during this project.
