Environmental Assessment


Beaver Dam Mine Project


This is to advise that on June 28, 2017, Atlantic Gold Corporation registered the Beaver Dam Mine Project for environmental assessment, in accordance with Part IV of the Environment Act.

The purpose of the proposed project is to extract and primarily crush gold ore at the Beaver Dam Mine Site. The ore will then be transported by truck 30.7 km to the existing Touquoy Gold Mine for processing. Pending approval to proceed, construction is anticipated to commence in 2021 with reclamation beginning in 2027.

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency and Nova Scotia Environment have established an agreement for a joint environmental assessment of the proposed Beaver Dam Mine.
