The Proposed Project

BURNCO Rock Products Ltd. is proposing the construction and operation of a new sand and gravel mine located on the northwest shore of Howe Sound, approximately 22 kilometres southwest of Squamish, British Columbia. The mine's maximum production capacity would be approximately 1.6 million tonnes of sand and gravel per year, over an expected mine life of about 16 years.
