Eagle's Nest Project

Projects that were undergoing a comprehensive study at the time the provisions of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 came into force will continue to follow the requirements of the former Act. Under the former Act, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is responsible for conducting the comprehensive study of this project.

Noront Resources Ltd. is proposing the construction, operation, decommissioning and abandonment of an underground nickel-copper-platinum multi-metal mine, an on-site metal mill, and a facility for the extraction of 358,000 cubic metres per annum of groundwater. The proposed mine, located approximately 540 kilometres north of the city of Thunder Bay, Ontario and 240 kilometres west of James Bay in the Ring of Fire mining area, would have an ore production capacity of approximately 2,960 tonnes per day, with an anticipated mine life of approximately 11 years. The on-site metal mill would have an ore input capacity of 2,960 tonnes per day.
