The Amaruq Exploration Property (Amaruq) is a 408-square kilometre site located on Inuit Owned Land (IOL), approximately 150 kilometres north of Baker Lake, and approximately 50 kilometres northwest of the Meadowbank mine. The Amaruq Exploration Access Road is approved to be a 6.5 metre (m) wide exploration sized road that is 64.134 km in length, and will connect the Meadowbank mine site, north of Vault Pit operations, to the Amaruq Exploration site. Additional hard rock quarries will allow for the road to be constructed in a timely fashion that minimizes thaw susceptibility, and will ensure the construction of the access road is economical.
As a result, Agnico Eagle is applying to the Nunavut Water Board to amend the Type B 8BC-AEA1525 to include 6 additional quarries (Q 10+500; Q 26+250; Q 30+050; Q 34+900; Q 50+600; and Q 52+00;) located immediately adjacent to the approved exploration access road.
