The formal stakeholder consultation process on our planning application to build an underground gold mine began in February and there is still time to register your support. Our proposal is to build an underground gold mine that will create more than 350 full-time jobs, with an average salary of £40,000. Local businesses will benefit from spending of $1 billion over the life time of the mine. Dalradian is committed to building a mine that is modern, safe and environmentally responsible. A “best in class” operation, globally.
Irish News, detailing the impact of a gold mine in a Canadian town, in which a Dalradian investor, Sean Roosen, was involved: “That investment transformed the town from a place with 45% unemployment to one where almost half residents now work in the mine due to the creation of 800 full-time jobs.”
Reference: LA10/2017 /1249/F We submitted our planning application in November 2017 and it runs to almost 10,000 pages, containing an Environmental Statement with nearly 40 detailed reports from internationally recognised environmental experts. The statement sets out the environmental and socioeconomic aspects of our plans and the measures we will take to maximize the benefits of the project to the local area as well as manage and minimize any environmental impacts. The Planning Application (ref: LA10/2017/1249/F) can be accessed via the Planning Portal website, www.epicpublic.planningni.gov.uk/publicaccess. Hard copies can also be viewed at DfI offices in Belfast, Derry/L’derry, Omagh Library and the Owenkillew Community Centre.
