Magino Gold Project Waste Disposal Session

Local residents are getting a chance to make comments in person about a waste disposal from a proposed gold mine in the region.

A public consultation session is being held on the proposed Magino Gold Project today, focusing on regulations that would allow mine waste to be deposited in water bodies where fish live.

Wawa's public consultation session will be held from 6 to 9 tonight at the Legion Hall, with a session at Dubreuilville's Town Hall from 6 to 9 tomorrow night.

Anyone who can't attend the sessions could submit comments in writing by December 21st.

This comes as the project's in the final comment period of a federal environmental assessment - the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency's accepting comments for that online and through the mail until December 2nd.
