OTTAWA, Dec. 1, 2017 /CNW/ - The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) must decide whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the proposed Foxtrot Rare Earth Element Mine Project located approximately 36 kilometres southeast of Port Hope Simpson, Newfoundland and Labrador.
To help inform this decision, the Agency is seeking comments from the public and Indigenous groups 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 environmental assessment of the project.
Written comments in either official language must be submitted by December 21, 2017 to:
