Hardrock Gold Mine Project – Public Comments Invited

News release

October 1, 2018 — Ottawa — Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) is conducting a federal environmental assessment of the proposed Hardrock Gold Mine Project, located five kilometres south of Geraldton, in northwestern Ontario.

The Agency invites the public and Indigenous groups to comment on the draft Environmental Assessment Report, which includes the Agency's conclusions and recommendations regarding the potential environmental effects of the project and their significance, the proposed mitigation measures, and the follow-up program.

The Agency also invites comments on the potential environmental assessment conditions for the project. Final conditions would become legally-binding on the proponent if the project is allowed to proceed.

This project has benefited from several consultation opportunities with the public and Indigenous groups. This is the final public comment period in the process.

All comments received will be considered public. Written comments in either official language must be submitted by November 1, 2018 to:

Hardrock Gold Mine Project
Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
55 York Street, Suite 600
Toronto, Ontario M5J 1R7
Telephone: 416-952-1576
Email: ceaa.hardrockmine-minehardrock.acee@canada.ca

Following the public comment period, the Environmental Assessment Report and potential environmental assessment conditions will be finalized and provided to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, along with comments received. The Minister will make a decision on whether the project is likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
