The Nuclear Waste Management Organization says it plans to conduct some more extensive testing in the Ignace area this summer.

Ignace is one of nine locations that have been short-listed for a long-term nuclear waste storage site.

Spokesperson Pat Dolcetti says it’s just part of their on-going site selection process.

Dolcetti says prior to the drilling program they will be consulting with area residents and first nation communities to get some feedback about locations being considered for testing.
