Wawa Mayor Optimistic About Magino Mine Future

Wawa's mayor is expressing optimism as a proposed Dubreuilville gold mine has cleared its federal environmental assessment.

Speaking to JJAM FM's Town Talk, Mayor Ron Rody noted he was in Sault Ste. Marie for the announcement - and he agrees this could be quite good for the region.

While Mayor Rody is optimistic after last week's announcement, he does note the Magino project still has some hurdles to go, including some provincial regulations, as well as negotiations for agreements with local First Nations communities - though he does hope to see "some real activity" at the mine site for next year.
