There are many projects in our working lives that we hear about as being at a critical stage of a decision, but then we never find out the final decision and how the story ends. New Brunswick was going through one of those situations back in 2014-2016 and the CLRA Atlantic Chapter ARC2015 event was held during the middle of the discussions. Here is a short connection to what direction the Mactaquac Project has taken since ARC 2015.

The exploration and extraction of mineral resources have been ongoing activities in the Wawa area since the operation of primitive copper mines in the late 1600’s. Short-lived copper and iron ore mining ventures occurred in the 1770’s and unsuccessful mining exploits continued in spurts until 1897 when gold was discovered on the south shore of Wawa Lake ensuring Wawa’s future as a mining town.
The CLRA would like to acknowledge the passing of a fellow industry professional from Calgary, AB Mr. Lin Callow. As a professional biologist Lin spent his career working on environmental management for energy and mining projects.
