The Council of Canadians Fredericton chapter was at a public consultation held by Environment Canada last night to express their opposition to the Sisson mine that was approved by the Trudeau government in June 2017.
The Sisson open-pit tungsten and molybdenum mine would be built at the headwaters of the Nashwaak River on Maliseet territory about 100 kilometres north of Fredericton. The mine would also include an unlined tailings pond and an ore processing plant. Molybdenum is used for warplanes and industrial motors.
CBC reports, "Close to 250 people crowded into the Upper Nashwaak Lions Club in Cross Creek to hear what the company [Northcliff Resources Ltd] behind the Sisson mine project had to say about its dispose of waste water into fish-bearing brooks and compensate for the loss of fish habitat."
