Casino Mine Panel Review

The Casino Mine project is a proposed copper, silver, gold, and molybdenum mine approximately 150 km north-east of Carmacks. In 2016, the Executive Committee determined that this proposed project requires a review of a panel of the board. To commence a review of a panel of the board, the proponent (Casino Mining Corporation) must submit a environmental and socio-economic effects statement (its project proposal) to the Executive Committee.

On October 11, 2022, the Casino Mining Corporation submitted notice of its intention to submit its environmental and socio-economic effects statement (its project proposal) for the Casino Mine project by mid July 2023.

Once submitted, the Executive Committee will review the statement to ensure that it complies with the guidelines set out by the Executive Committee. Should the Executive Committee be satisfied that the statement conforms with the guidelines, it will:

  • Select panel members and designate a chairperson;
  • Establish the terms of reference for a review of the Casino Mine project by a panel of the board; and
  • Publish notice of the establishment of the panel and its terms of reference.
