Goffs Quarry Expansion Project

Description

This is to advise that on August 7, 2018 Scotian Materials Limited registered the Goffs Quarry Expansion Project for environmental assessment, in accordance with Part IV of the Environment Act.

The purpose of the proposed undertaking is to expand the existing Goffs quarry located on private land owned by Scotian Materials (PID: 00505941). The expansion would extend the life of the existing quarry by an estimated 25 to 50 years. The anticipated average production rate is 150,000 to 300,000 tonnes per year. Project activities (including construction and operation) are anticipated to begin in 2019. The total area of the proposed project is 41 ha.

Minister's Decision

On or before September 26, 2018, the Minister of Environment will decide if the project can be granted conditional environmental assessment approval.
