Association for Mineral Exploration BC (AME BC) reports its celebration of the approval of the Northwest Transmission Line project.
The market news is quoted as saying:
The BC Environmental Assessment Office has granted BC Hydro an environmental assessment certificate for the proposed $404 million, 344-kilometre transmission line project from the existing Skeena substation south of Terrace to a new substation near Bob Quinn Lake.
AME BC’s President & CEO, Gavin C. Dirom says:
“In fact, there are over 935 mineral occurrences identified in the region that could benefit from the transmission line, of which 67 have been documented in the resource category.”
“We congratulate Minister Pat Bell and Minister Murray Coell on their leadership and their timely and diligent review of the proposal to ensure that this project will benefit all British Columbians.”
