Corazon has commenced environmental assessment work for the proposed re-development of its Lynn Lake nickel sulphide mining centre in Canada, with the appointment of an environmental consultant Stantec Consulting.

Stantec’s environmental and engineering services will help support the development of a mine plan – and to guide the company through the environmental approvals process for a proposed new nickel-copper-cobalt sulphide mine at Lynn Lake.

Under phase one of its engagement, Stantec will collate all historical environmental baseline data for the project, define areas with information gaps and implement a baseline data-gathering program.

Stantec will also work with Corazon Mining’s (ASX:CZN) Australian engineering consultants, Palaris, on the conceptual/initial mine plan and provide guidance to advance the project through the environmental approvals process for the possible restart of mining operations.

Vast experience in the Lynn Lake region

Stantec has a long history of involvement in environmental monitoring at Lynn Lake, and from 2008 to 2016, was involved in the Manitoba Government’s remediation/reclamation of the historical Lynn Lake mine area, along with the post- remediation water quality monitoring.

More recently Stantec has worked with Alamos Gold Inc. (TSX:AGI) to secure both provincial and federal government approvals for the commencement of their gold mining operations at Lynn Lake.

“This is an important step forward in Lynn Lake’s development timeline,” CZN chairperson Terry Streeter said.

“We are delighted to have engaged Stantec – a global leader in the provision of environmental services to the mining sector, to guide us through the environmental approval process at Lynn Lake.

“The fact that they have vast experience in the Lynn Lake region will be of significant benefit as we seek to recommence mining operations at the Project.”
