Planning & Permitting

We are undertaking a comprehensive planning and review approach in partnership with First Nation communities.

Current Environmental Assessment Process

In 2011, we entered into a voluntary agreement on an individual Environmental Assessment (EA) with the province of Ontario. This was followed by a Terms of Reference (TOR), which was finalized in 2015. 

Following the receipt of the TOR, the company continued to evaluate the Project, considering the feedback received during the EA consultation period.

Updates have been made to further minimize the potential impact at surface, as well as to maximize the usage of areas within the Project boundary from previous exploration activities. 

Wyloo continues to review critical engineering and environmental infrastructure as we advance discussions with First Nation communities.

Wyloo continues to review critical engineering and environmental infrastructure as we advance discussions with First Nation communities.

As part of our ‘glass box’ approach, Wyloo is working with data specialists to create an open platform for sharing environmental information, whereby First Nation communities are able to provide real-time feedback on monitoring events. 

Wyloo’s glass box approach will provide a forum for ongoing dialogue with First Nation communities, inviting traditional knowledge into a transparent adaptive management initiative for understanding the local and regional environment.

Webequie First Nation and Marten Falls First Nation are the Environmental Assessment proponents for an infrastructure corridor that will facilitate all-season road access.
