Lynn Lake Gold Project

Public Comments Invited on the Draft Environmental Assessment Report and Potential Conditions

What is happening?

November 7, 2022 — The Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (the Agency) is conducting a federal environmental assessment of the proposed Lynn Lake Gold Project, an open-pit gold mine and metal mill located in Manitoba.

The Agency invites the public and Indigenous groups to comment on the draft Environmental Assessment Report that includes the Agency's conclusions and recommendations regarding the potential environmental effects of the project and their significance, the proposed key mitigation measures, and the follow-up program.

The Agency also invites comments on the draft potential environmental assessment conditions for the project. Final conditions would become legally-binding for the proponent if the Minister of Environment and Climate Change issues a decision statement indicating the project may proceed.

How can I participate?

Comments should be submitted online by visiting the project home page on the Canadian Impact Assessment Registry (reference number 80140). The draft Report and potential conditions are also available on the Registry. Participants who wish to provide their input in a different format can contact the Agency by writing to

Written comments in either official language will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. on December 7, 2022. All comments received will be published online as part of the project file.

What is the proposed project?

Alamos Gold Inc. is proposing the construction, operation, decommissioning, and reclamation of an open pit gold mine and new metal mill located approximately 1000 kilometres north of Winnipeg, near Lynn Lake, Manitoba. The Lynn Lake Gold Project would involve the redevelopment of two historical gold mines (the Gordon site and MacLellan site) and have an ore input capacity of 8,000 tonnes per day over a 13-year period. Components of the project would include new mine infrastructure, open pits, an access road, a central ore milling and processing plant, ore stockpiles and mine rock storage areas, and a tailings management facility.
