Community Frequently Asked QuestionsIn late 2012, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) accepted Treasury's Project Description, thereby officially initiating the mine development permitting and approval process. The CEAA determined that Goliath would be subject to an Environmental Assessment and issued Environmental Impact Statement guidelines. The guidelines identify the nature, scope, and extent of information required for the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
Treasury is also on track with its provincial permitting responsibilities. Among the Provincial requirements are Class EA's running concurrently with the Federal EA, Environmental Compliance Approvals (ECA) for air, noise and water and a Closure Plan that will be filed with the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines.
