Environmental Assessment

  • Dumont is fully-permitted with the provincial and federal governments
  • The main basis for approval at the provincial and federal levels was the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) for Nion

  • The Quebec government approved the Dumont Project through a Ministerial Decree on June 17, 2015
  • The federal Minister of the Environment issued a positive Environmental Assessment Decision on July 29, 2015, finding that Dumont is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects based on the mitigation measures outlined in the ESIA

Monitoring Committee
