Dear Mr. Millard:

SUBJECT: Fifteen Mile Stream Gold Project

Through discussion with Atlantic Gold, publically available documentation (e.g. media releases; Moose River Consolidated Mine NI 43-101 Technical Report) and comments from the public and Indigenous groups, the Agency is aware of plans to expand mining activities at the Fifteen Mile Stream Gold Project beyond those identified in the Project Description upon which the Environmental Impact Statement Guidelines were developed (

Prior to the submission of the Environmental Impact Statement, the Agency requires information outlining Atlantic Gold's intentions to expand the project. The response should provide clarity surrounding the timing and extent of the potential expansion, and the planned schedule to obtain any required federal or provincial environmental assessment approvals. The Agency will use this information to understand the implications of this expansion, if any, to the ongoing federal environmental assessment.

Your prompt attention to this request is much appreciated. Please contact Melanie Smith ( with any questions.
