Stantec will lead the environmental baseline program for the Duparquet Gold Project in Duparquet, Quebec.

First Mining Gold (FMG) tapped Stantec to lead the environmental baseline program for the proposed Duparquet Gold Project in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue greenstone belt in Duparquet, Quebec. BluMetric Environmental Inc. will support Stantec’s water-related disciplines.

Stantec said its environmental services team will collaborate with FMG and other consultants as a single, integrated team to obtain approvals. “We’ve assembled a strong team of experienced professionals with technical knowledge of the mining industry, long-standing knowledge of the region, and a focus on health and safety to lead these studies,” said Fortunato Coppola, a mining engineer with Stantec’s environmental services team.

Previously, Stantec led the Greenstone Gold Mine’s (GGM) Hardrock Project in Ontario, and advised Generation PGM’s Marathon Palladium-Copper Project, which is the first mine in the province to receive approval through a joint-review panel process.
