The Proposed Project

Atlantic Mining NS Corp, a wholly owned subsidiary of Atlantic Gold Corporation, is proposing the construction, operation, decommissioning, and reclamation of an open-pit gold mine located 95 kilometres northeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia. As proposed, the Fifteen Mile Stream Gold Project would include open pits, stockpiles, materials storage, crushing and concentrator facilities, water management and treatment infrastructure, mine haul roads, and an above-ground tailings management facility. Ore would be crushed and concentrated on site to produce a gold concentrate that would be hauled to Touquoy Mine for final processing, a distance of 76 kilometres on existing public roads. The mine would operate at a rate of approximately two million tonnes of gold-bearing ore per year.
