Duck Pond Mine Operations Camp

Proponent: Aur Resources Inc.

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

  • Project Description:

    The proponent proposes to renovate and upgrade the existing construction camp into a 100 person operations camp. The original plan, as outlined in the Environmental Impact Statement (August 2001), would have seen all operations phase employees living offsite and commuting to the mine. No new areas are required to be cleared, and the same water supply, power connection, and sewage and solid waste disposal will be used. The registration document includes an assessment of anticipated socio-economic effects. Operations camp facilities are scheduled to be ready for occupancy in late 2006 or early 2007.
