VANCOUVER The Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB) has issued its hearing report for the Doris North gold mine project at Hope Bay, 100%-owned by MIRAMAR MINING CORP., following the public hearings of July 11-16, 2004. NIRB has recommended that the project should not proceed because of information deficiencies in the current application. However, NIRB encouraged Miramar to file another application with additional information to bring the project for another review.
Miramar started to gather the additional information in July and is confident that it will be able to meet these requirements within an efficient time frame so that NIRB can proceed with a recommendation to approve the Environmental Impact Statement.
Miramar is currently assessing what impacts NIRB’s decision might have on the Doris North production schedule. For more information on the company and its projects visit www.miramarmining.com.
