y 2021, there could be a new mine in Gogama. IAMGOLD
and Sumitomo Metal Mining (SMM) are assessing
the potential to construct and operate an open-pit
gold mine with an estimated throughput of approximately
32,000 tonnes per day.
Manager for the Côté Gold Project, Steven Bowles, is pleased
with the progress to date. "There has been a lot of interest
from companies that want to get involved in this project. As
it stands, we hope to have the feasibility study completed in
the first half of 2019. There has been very good progress over
the past few months to advance the study," he explained.
The team expects mine construction to start in the second
half of 2019. "The delivery of a Leave to Construct for the
powerline, as well as the closure plan, are expected later this
year to secure the advancement of the project. We're working
on getting the engineering to progress in order to maintain
the construction timeline."

The Côté Project has progressed thanks largely to the efforts
of the project team members over the past few years. "We
also value our relationship with indigenous communities,
particularly Mattagami First Nation and Flying Post First
Nation. Our team is aligned with the values of Aboriginal
development," Bowles went on to say.
The project is expected to deploy over $1 billion of capital
during the construction phase. "The influx of jobs and infrastructure promises to have a positive impact on indigenous
communities and the surrounding region."
The project, which is situated approximately halfway
between Sudbury and Timmins, has received positive feedback from across the industry. "With the results obtained
during the Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS), the project is expected
to deliver strong economic results," Bowles said.
With the closest Hydro One substation located 45 kilometres
away, the project team will need to construct a transmission
