The Beaver Dam Mine Project (the Project) would have an ore production rate of 5480 tonnes per day, over a four-year period. Ore from the Project would be crushed and transported 37 kilometres by road to the Moose River (Touquoy) mine for processing. Components of the Project would include an open pit, a materials storage facility, mine haul roads, mine infrastructure for crushing and haul-out, and road upgrades.
