Beaver Dam Mine Project

Atlantic Mining NS Corp. is proposing the construction, operation, decommissioning, and reclamation of an open pit gold mine in Marinette, Nova Scotia. As proposed, the Beaver Dam Mine Project would have an ore production rate of 5480 tonnes per day, over a four-year period. Ore from the project would be crushed and transported approximately 31 kilometres by road to the Moose River (Touquoy) mine for processing. Components of the project would include an open pit, mine site haul roads, waste material storage piles, ore stockpiles, crusher and operational facilities, and water management.
