Hi Mia,

Thanks for your question. Project construction is expected to begin in Q3 2021.

In March this year, we sent a letter to the BC Environmental Assessment Office requesting a one-time extension to our five year Environmental Assessment Certificate. This was due to factors out of our control such as effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and issues with our preferred EPC contractor – unrelated to our project.

As we work towards start of construction, we are continuing to work with our Indigenous and commercial partners to meet all of our pre-construction commitments.
