The Minister of the Environment has designated this project and the environmental assessment will continue under the former Canadian Environmental Assessment Act.

Corridor Resources Inc. is proposing to drill one exploration well within Exploration Licence (EL) 1105 on a subsea geological structure called Old Harry in the Newfoundland and Labrador offshore. The exploratory well is anticipated to be drilled between 2012 and 2014. Exploration wells are beneficial in evaluating the resource potential of subsea geologic structures.
