"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."

line. "As it stands, we will be requesting a Leave to Construct
from the Ontario Energy Board. Also, working with Hydro
One, we will develop the project's technical specifications
and scope of work."
Site plans for the project will see dewatering of a lake and
compensation with the development of a new lake. "Water
monitoring has been maintained over the past few years
and we will continue to monitor it. The project will result
in Côté Lake being relocated because the main ore deposit
is located underneath. We're committed to constructing a
new lake as part of the development so that no fish habitat
is lost," said Bowles.
The planned open pit of approximately 145 hectares
will have the entire necessary infrastructure on-site. "The
site will house an ore processing plant, a mine rock area,
a tailings management facility, an accommodations complex and other buildings. We will need workers to fill a

wide range of positions from mining operations to finance
to human resources."
Based on the PFS results, the project will have a lifespan of 17 years. "By the end of the mine's life, we plan on
reclaiming the mine site," Bowles explained. "Our Zero Harm
vision ensures we look after our people, communities and
the environment. Working with our host communities, we
want to ensure we're mining in a responsible manner. Being
accountable is at the core of who we are."
Looking ahead, the mining professional believes the future of
the project and open-pit mining is bright. "There is a renewed
optimism in the mining sector. Before, there was not a lot of
appetite for mining investment. Today, the industry is investing in
research and development, and the latest technologies. Mineral
components are essential for a plethora of products. I don't
expect that demand to waver anytime soon," Bowles concluded.
