Baie Verte Area, Stog'er Tight Goldmine -
West Pit Expansion 

Proponent:  Anaconda Mining Inc.

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent proposes to expand their West Pit site at the existing Stog’er Tight mine project by 0.395 hectares of land below the current water level of Fox Pond in order to mine a deeper portion of the ore resource.  The water level of Fox Pond would be temporarily lowered from 114 to 111 metres above sea level elevation and kept at this level until mining is completed, at which point this area would be flooded and water levels will climb back to natural levels.  The mineable ore reserve/resource totals approximately 140,000 tonnes (33,000 tonnes approved with the previous application).  The deposit will be mined over an eight to ten month period commencing in winter/spring of 2017/2018 and ore will be processed at the Pine Cove Mill facility already in operation.
