The Proposed Project
Prodigy Gold Incorporated, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Argonaut Gold Incorporated, is proposing the construction, operation, decommissioning and abandonment of an open-pit gold mine and metal mill located 14 kilometres south-east of Dubreuilville, Ontario. Mining would occur over 10 years with an ore production capacity of 45,200 tonnes per day. The on-site metal mill would have an ore input capacity of 35,000 tonnes per day and would operate for approximately 12 to 15 years.
