In the fall of 2020, Bancroft Minden Forestry initiated logging operations off Telephone Bay Road, on the east end of the Lake. These plans were presented at the 2020 AGM.
The operations have caused more disruption than was expected, resulting in notable visual impacts along Telephone Bay Road. The logging operation is continuing in 2021 with an access point across from the Telephone Bay Road boat launch and along Fallowfield Road.
The KLA arranged for a representative from the BMFC to make a presentation and respond to questions at the 2021 AGM. You can view the slides from that presentation here. Following the AGM the KLA submitted a list of questions to the BMFC. Responses will be shared here on the KLA website when they are available.
Discussions with the BMFC are ongoing on the timing and impacts of the 2021-2022 operations, road access issues and the location of staging areas. Further updates will be provided as they become available.
