NIRB 124149/12MN036: Issuance of Corrected NIRB Project Certificate No. 007 for the Back River Gold Mine Project


    Dear Matthew Pickard:

    Due to an administrative error, the wrong version of Sabina Gold & Silver Corp.'s Project Certificate No. 007 for the Back River Gold Mine Project was distributed to parties. The NIRB is resending the original notice with the correct version attached.

    Pursuant to Sections 12.5.12 of Article 12 of the Nunavut Agreement Between the Inuit of the Nunavut Settlement Area and Her Majesty the Queen in right of Canada (the Nunavut Agreement), the Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB or Board) is pleased to issue the enclosed Project Certificate No. 007 for the Back River Gold Mine Project (NIRB File No. 12MN036) to Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. (Sabina).

    The NIRB would like to thank the parties that provided input regarding planned implementation of terms and conditions from the NIRB’s Revised Final Hearing Report, as well as noting useful clarification on the December 6, 2017 draft Project Certificate, prior to finalization by the Board. For the information of all parties, the NIRB has produced a companion document to the Project Certificate which identifies in tracked changes format all revisions made to the December 6, 2017 draft Project Certificate as a result of the Project Certificate workshop held via teleconference on December 14, 2017.

    The NIRB looks forward to working with Sabina and all parties to ensure that the enclosed Project Certificate is fully implemented and achieves the identified objectives. If you have any questions or require clarification regarding the amended Project Certificate, please contact the NIRB’s Executive Director, Ryan Barry directly at (867) 983-4608 or via email at rbarry@nirb.ca.

    Best regards,
