Share your ideas: Amendments to the Metal and Diamond Mining Effluent Regulations for the Goldboro Gold Project

Current status: Open

Consultations are from May 27, 2024, to July 27, 2024.

Background

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) is seeking comments from the public and Indigenous nations on a proposed authorization under the Metal and Diamond Mining Effluent Regulations (MDMER). The proposed authorization would allow the use of seven water courses frequented by fish for mine waste disposal from the Goldboro Gold mine. If approved, the disposal would impact approximately 0.27 hectares of fish habitat. This requires an amendment to Schedule 2 of the MDMER to list these water bodies as “Tailings Impoundment Areas”.

Focus of this consultation

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) is consulting on the Fish Habitat Compensation Plan.

An Assessment of Alternatives Report is also available for information. This report was prepared in accordance with Environment Canada’s  Guidelines on the assessment of alternatives for mine waste disposal.
