Canadian miner Artemis Gold has announced that the authorities of the province of British Columbia in Canada have issued an approval “of the early works permit is the first step required for mine construction, allowing for the necessary site prepa-ration and land clearing work to begin.”
“Advancing the Blackwater Gold project from exploration to early work will help unearth the massive economic potential in B.C.’s Cari-boo region,” said British Columbia’s Prime Minister John Horgan who was quoted in the statement.
“Mining and mineral exploration is a foundational part of B.C.’s econ-omy and key to building a stronger and more sustainable British Co-lumbia – one where everyone shares in our prosperity,” he said.
The miner claims that the Blackwater mine is estimated to be the big-gest gold mine development project in the Cariboo region of British Columbia in the last decade.
The “mine is expected to contribute $13.2 billion to the provincial economy, over the life of the mine, including $2.3 billion to provincial revenues,” the statement said.
