COMMUNITY OPEN HOUSE
Moose River Consolidated Project
Tuesday, May 17, 2016
3PM TO 8PM
Saint Kateri Tekakwitha (Church Basement)
Atlantic Gold is pleased to invite Sipekne’katik Band members to the Community Open House to review
information on the planned start of construction of the permitted Touquoy Gold Mine and the
commencement of the Environmental Assessment processes for the Beaver Dam Gold Mine.
These two gold deposits are part of Atlantic Gold’s Moose River Consolidated Project.
The mining of the Touquoy deposit will occur for approximately five years.
If successfully permitted, the mining of the Beaver Dam deposit would follow for three to four years.
Gold ore mined from Beaver Dam is proposed to be trucked to and processed at the Touquoy site using existing facilities.
During construction, employment will peak at 300 people primarily with contractors. Jobs created
during operation are expected to be about 150 for Touquoy and 215 for Beaver Dam.
Please drop by the Community Open House at your convenience to gather information and share your
input on the Moose River Consolidated (MRC) Project with our team. Information will be shared on
social, environmental and economic aspects of the MRC Project. Light refreshments will be served.
Band members are also welcome to attend public open houses scheduled for May 18 at the Natural Resources
Education Centre in Middle Musquodoboit and May 19 in Sheet Harbour Lions Club (both from 3PM to 8PM).
If you are unable to attend an open house and wish to receive information or provide input,
please contact Atlantic Gold.
