The Proposed Project

Nordmin Resource and Industrial Engineering Ltd. proposes to construct, operate, decommission and reclaim a gold/silver mine, and a milling complex near Channel-Port aux Basques, located in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Additional project components would include a tailings management facility, mine haul roads, mine infrastructure, and the improvement of an existing 22-kilometre long access road.
