Geology in Huron-Kinloss

Geology in Huron-Kinloss

The international consensus is that both crystalline and sedimentary rock formations have properties that make either potentially suitable for the safe containment and isolation of used nuclear fuel. Both of these rock formations are found in Ontario where all the study areas are located.

The nine-step site selection process, with its progressively more detailed studies, will ensure the selected site is located in a suitable rock formation. The geology must meet all scientific and technical site evaluation factors for the protection of present and future generations and the environment over the long term.
