OTTAWA, Oct. 24, 2016 /CNW/ - The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency must decide whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the proposed Borden Gold Mine Project, located near Chapleau, Ontario, approximately 160 kilometres southwest of Timmins.
To help inform this decision, the Agency is seeking comments from the public on the project and its potential effects on the environment, as described in the summary of the project description. All comments received will be considered public.
As a next step, the Agency will post a decision on its website stating whether an environmental assessment is required. If one is required, the public will have three more opportunities to comment on the project.
Written comments must be submitted by November 14, 2016 to:
