Magino Gold Project – Additional Federal Funding Allocated to Support Aboriginal Participation in Environmental Assessment

August 15, 2014 — The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) has allocated $35,000 to the Batchewana First Nation to assist its participation in the environmental assessment of the proposed Magino Gold Project, located in Ontario.

This funding was made available to Aboriginal groups through the Participant Funding Program administered by the Agency. It will enable participation in upcoming steps of the environmental assessment, which include reviewing and providing comments on the Environmental Impact Statement summary and on the draft Environmental Assessment Report.

For more information on the Participant Funding Program, the federal environmental assessment process and the project, please visit the Agency's website (Registry reference number 80044).

The Proposed Project

Prodigy Gold Incorporated, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Argonaut Gold Incorporated, is proposing the re-development of the Magino Gold mine. The proposed project, located 14 kilometres south-east of the town of Dubreuilville, Ontario, would involve the construction, operation, decommissioning, and abandonment of an open-pit mine and metal mill. Mining would occur over seven to eight years with an ore production capacity of 30,000 tonnes per day. The on-site metal mill would have an ore input capacity of 15,000 tonnes per day and would operate for approximately 15 years.
