SnapshotThe Montauban region has a high environmental legacy of contamination by historical tailings and it is the objective of the Company to correct the situation by removing as much tailings as possible from these lands and stabilize them into a new tailings site. The Company is fully permitted for its mill and most of its tailings’ tonnage.

The Montauban Gold Project comprises five principal tailings sites: Anacon Lead 1, Anacon Lead 2, Tétreault 1 and Tétreault 2 (the “Montauban tailings”), and the NotreDame-de-Montauban tailings, all of which were generated during the processing of ore from the historic underground Montauban Mine, which hosted a gold-rich VMS deposit.

The current permitting status allows for the reprocessing of tailings from the Anacon Lead 1 tailings site. A CA for the reprocessing of tailings from the other tailings sites is required.
