  • Thank you for the opportunity to provide comment on the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) of proposed Fifteen Mile Stream (FMS) Gold Project submitted by Atlantic Mining NS Inc, a wholly owned subsidiary of St Barbara Limited, as part of the Environmental Assessment (EA) process.  I have significant concerns with the project as a whole. I question the wisdom of considering or approving a project that despite any or all mitigation measures will substantially degrade Nova Scotia’s lands, waters and wildlife. Though there are many concerns that I address, the primary ones are related to loss of species at risk and of concern and their habitat, along with broader degration of habitat from edge and fragmentation effects, both directly related to the project ...

  • The Fifteen Mile Stream proposed open-pit gold mine is of considerable concern owing to its significant and irreversible environmental impacts. These include:  the destruction of ecologically sensitive wetland habitat  the vast amount of water drained from surrounding lakes and rivers  the toxic chemicals and heavy metals leached into surrounding water systems  the build-up of metal-laden sediment in nearby water bodies  the acidification of lakes and rivers through acid rock drainage  the eutrophication of surrounding lakes through the input of nitrates and ammonia  the massive tailings impoundments which disrupt critical ecosystems, killing fish, wildlife, and migratory birds, in addition to the serious threat of dam ruptures and spills Here in Nova Scotia, our unique geology, topography, and climate make us particularly vulnerable to the perils of open-pit gold mining. Specifically, the gold-bearing minerals found here also contain high ...

Kwilmu’kw Maw-klusuaqn Negotiation Office (KMKNO) has contracted CBCL to conduct a review of the EIS report and I have enclosed the report as part of our submission. I wish to highlight additional comments, concerns and/or recommendations. The Mi’kmaq of Nova Scotia depend on the lands, waters, and resources in Nova Scotia and the Mi’kmaw Nation has never surrendered, ceded, or sold title to any of its lands and waters in Nova Scotia. The Mi’kmaq have a title claim to all of Nova Scotia and as co-owners of the land and its resources it is expected that any potential ...

Our concerns about the proposed project are based on the Proponent's stated intention to construct four gold mines (Atlantic Gold's “string of pearls”) along the Eastern Shore, from Moose River to Sherbrooke. All of the ore will be processed at Moose River. This plan includes using the Touquoy mine infrastructure at Moose River for ...
