First Nation participating in mine EA

By: Northern Ontario Business staff

The Naotkamegwanning First Nation is receiving $45,000 from the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency to participate in the environmental assessment of Treasury Metals’ proposed Goliath Gold Mine near Dryden in northwestern Ontario.

Treasury Metals Limited is proposing the construction, operation, decommissioning, and abandonment of an open-pit and underground gold mine and associated infrastructure. The proposed mine, located 20 kilometres east of Dryden will have an ore production capacity of 2,500 tonnes per day with an anticipated mine life of approximately 10 to 12 years.

This funding was made available to Aboriginal groups through the agency’s Participant Funding Program to enable participating in the assessment, such as consultation related to the Environmental Impact Statement and consultation on the draft Environmental Assessment Report.
