Marathon’s goal is to avoid or minimize the environmental effects of our proposed Project. We have been collecting environmental baseline data since our exploration work commenced in 2010, and continue to collect and assess environmental information to support the submission of our Environmental Impact Statement in 2020. For more information on Marathon’s Environmental Assessment (EA) process and requirements under the provincial and federal governments, including opportunities for stakeholders and Indigenous groups to provide feedback, we invite you to visit the following websites:
Marathon Gold Corporation has submitted an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in support of the Valentine Gold Mine Project to the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (IAAC) and the NL Department of Environment, Climate Change and Municipalities (NLDECCM). Marathon, IAAC and NLDECCM invite public and stakeholder review and comment on the document. The public comment period on the EIS ends on December 23, 2020.
The Environmental Impact Statement document is available for review online at https://iaac-aeic.gc.ca/050/evaluations/proj/80169 and https://www.gov.nl.ca/eccm/projects/project-2015/. Reference copies are available for public viewing at the following locations.
