The Proposed Project

Atlantic Gold Corporation is proposing the construction, operation, decommissioning, and reclamation of an open pit gold mine located approximately 95 kilometres northeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia. As proposed, the Fifteen Mile Stream Gold Project would include open pits, stockpiles, materials storage facilities, mine haul roads, mine infrastructure for crushing, and tailings storage. The mine would operate at a rate of approximately two million tonnes of gold-bearing ore per year.
