Aerial view of Greenstone Mine Project Development Area captured during a helicopter led aerial survey, depicting progress to date. The S4 Access Road provides access to the S4 Aggregate Pit that will provide much of the aggregate needed for construction of the Tailings Management Facility (TMF) North Dam. The Future Haul Road will connect the Future Open Pit and the Future TMF North Dam.

Planned activities for the week of September 6th include continuing to advance the Early Earth Works within the Kenogamisis and S4 Aggregate Pits, the Phase 2 installation of modules within the Temporary Lodging Facility area and the installation of power lines, construction of the Surface Water Detention Area and road construction and upgrades.

What's coming next:

Commissioning of the Temporary Effluent Water Treatment Plant (TEWTP) located South of Hardrock Road continues.  Early Earth Works in the Kenogamisis Pit located North of Highway 11 behind Between Bridges Inn continues and includes the extraction and crushing of gravel for upcoming construction activities. Phase 1 commissioning of the kitchen and living quarters within the Temporary Lodging Facility (TLF) and the installation of modules for Phase 2 within the TLF will continue. These activities will cause additional tractor trailer traffic on Highway 584 and Old Arena Road leading to the TLF entrance. Work will recommence on the Temporary Power Line with the installation of power lines between Highway 11 and the TEWTP. The Main Construction Office Complex within the Process Plant Site area will continue with interior and exterior work including the installation of office furnishings while construction of the detention pond in preparation for stripping and excavation of the Plant Site area will commence. Construction of the Haul Road Service Access located between the future Process Plant Site and Tailings Management Facility and the upgrades to Lahtis Road will continue. Construction of an access road within the MacLeod High Tailings (MHT) area will continue in preparation for the future construction of the MHT seepage collection system. Construction of the Surface Water Detention Area located near the Process Plant footprint will also continue.

The Early Earth Works within the Kenogamisis and S4 Aggregate Pits, road construction and upgrades and the installation of modules involve the use of heavy equipment such as: zoom booms, cranes, excavators, bulldozers, tri-axle haul trucks, and loaders. For health and safety reasons, we wish to caution the general public to limit non-essential traffic within Hardrock Road and the TEWTP area and to follow and obey posted signs across the Project area.

The safety of our employees, contractors and the general public is paramount as we continue to prepare for construction of the Greenstone Mine.
