BluMetric Announces New Contracts Exceeding $1.5 Million in the Northern Territories

06:30 EDT Thursday, July 11, 2013

OTTAWA, July 11, 2013 /CNW/ - BluMetric Environmental Inc. (TSX-V: BLM) is pleased to announce a new mining-site water management and remediation project in the Yukon which is expected to exceed $1 million in revenue over the two-year contract, and which, in combination with other new projects in the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut, will bring the company's total fees in the northern territories this year to more than $1.5 million, representing a 50% increase over last year's cumulative work in that region. This particular project involves not only working to minimize or negate groundwater and surface water contamination but to manage the complex interrelationships among all the players involved.

"We are increasingly recognized both for our ability to handle highly complex water treatment and management problems and for our project management and stakeholder relationship skills," said Nell van Walsum, President of BluMetric's Professional Services Division.  "Our work in the north, for a wide variety of government and commercial clients, has ranged from mining-site remediation to contaminant management on demolition sites to infrastructure assessment relating to industrial hygiene, health and safety."

"We are beginning to benefit from situations in which the Water and Professional Services Divisions are actively working together on complex projects," said BluMetric's CEO, William Touzel.  "The symbiotic relationship we anticipated as a result of our merger is especially visible in longer-term projects, and should continue to strengthen as we broaden our service reach in the north."
