Molybdenum mine gets government certificate
The proposed Kitsault open-pit molybdenum mine on the north coast of BC has been issued an environmental assessment certificate (EAC) from the provincial government, despite a disagreement with the Nisga'a First Nation about the impact of the project.
“We are delighted with the decision by the B.C. Government and await a similar approval from the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency under their joint review memorandum,” said Craig J. Nelsen, president and CEO of Avanti Kitsault Mine Ltd.
“We continue to reach out to First Nations and the Nisga’a Nation to work constructively toward implementing the requirements set forth in the EAC.”
The proposed project will be located on Crown land about 140 kilometres north of Prince Rupert, at the head of Alice Arm, B.C.
Environment Minister Terry Lake and Energy, Mines and Natural Gas Minister Rich Coleman issued a conditional EAC to Avanti Kitsault Mine Ltd. for the project on March 19.
The decision was made after considering the review led by B.C.’s Environmental Assessment Office (BCEAO).
