Kitsault mine to re open.

An Environmental assessment office allowed a ‘procedural’ order that sets out the methods of a provincial environmental assessment for the wanted Kitsault Mine back in November. Its a $770million project that will restart an open pit operation that’s been unused and untouched for around 30 years.

A molybdenum mine on the site which is an estimated 140 kilometres north of Prince Rupert was last set foot in, in 1982, when production was stopped due to the decreased prices of metal.

But recently, a town site built for workers and mineral tenures have both been sold to owners that have markedly different outcomes for the future of the Kitsault mine.
