The Proposed Project

Atlantic Gold Corporation is proposing the construction, operation, decommissioning, and reclamation of an open pit gold mine in Marinette, Nova Scotia. The Beaver Dam Mine Project (the 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 37 km by road to the Moose River (Touquoy) mine for processing. Components of the Project would include an open pit, a materials storage facility, mine haul roads, mine infrastructure for crushing and haul-out, and road upgrades.
