Whale Cove area Exploration Projects (148849)
Proposal Status: Conformity Determination Issued
Project Overview
Type of application: New
Proponent name: David Frenette
Company: Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd.
Schedule:
Start Date: 2018-05-04
End Date: 2025-05-04
Operation Type: Annual
Project Description:
The present application has been prepared to obtain the authorizations for exploration activities in proposed areas and also include the installation of an exploration camp in one of these areas. The winter accesses already screened will allow Agnico Eagle to transport material and equipment from the Meliadine Mine and from the Whale Cove community to the exploration sites during the winter, thus reducing the use of helicopters during the exploration season. At this time, a limited quantity of material and equipment is planned to be transported, since these exploration projects are at an initial stage. Winter accesses will be used by tracked tractors (Challenger), passing directly on the ice and snow ensuring soil protection. Snowmobiles could also use these accesses.
