Duck Pond Mine Fish Habitat Compensation Program

A project led by Teck Resources Limited and Fisheries & Oceans Canada.

As a result of the mining activity in the area, Teck Resources Limited sought out projects in the area to restore fish habitat. Consequently, in the mid 1900’s various tributaries of the Exploits River including Harpoon Brook and East Pond Brook were channelized and dammed to facilitate log driving for the pulp and paper industry. Log driving caused stream bottoms to be covered with drowned pulpwood, bark debris and wood chips.  This accumulation of silts, fines and organic mud smothered the natural stream substrate rendering the habitat unsuitable for salmonids for spawning and rearing.
