Ottawa – 31 August 2023 – BluMetric Environmental Inc. (TSXV: BLM) (“BluMetric” or “the Company”), a full-service environmental consulting and engineering cleantech firm, announced today that it, in conjunction with Stantec, has been selected by Troilus Gold Corporation to lead and coordinate provincial and federal Environmental Impact Assessment (“EIA”) studies for the Troilus Gold project.
Situated in the southeastern area of the Nord-du-Québec Administrative Region, this pivotal project represents a $4.9 million contract, with BluMetric’s portion of this contract being $1.5 million. In addition to being responsible for comprehensive water, soil, and sediment studies and facilitating consultations with regulatory agencies and the Indigenous Cree communities, BluMetric will be the lead for the project.
The strategic arrangement between BluMetric and Stantec combines BluMetric’s expertise in water with Stantec’s expertise in permitting, which allows Troilus Gold to be supported throughout the EIA and permitting process.
“Being involved in the earlier stages of a mine’s development has been a priority for BluMetric as we aim to offer solutions for each phase of the lifecycle. These environmental consulting and engineering capabilities cover the initial assessment to production-scale discharge for small-to-mid sized mines. In addition, our ability to work with a brand name Canadian firm speaks to our unique capabilities as a Company,” said Scott MacFabe, CEO of BluMetric.
“We are happy to collaborate with BluMetric on this crucial part of our project development and look forward to present the results to all our stakeholders,” stated Jacqueline Leroux, Vice-President Operations, Environment and Permitting at Troilus Gold Corporation.
Earlier in August, the Company was selected along with Stantec for the proposed Duparquet Gold Project in the heart of the Abitibi-Témiscamingue greenstone belt in Duparquet, Québec. BluMetric will support Stantec’s water-related disciplines as they conduct the environmental baseline work.
BluMetric continues to strengthen its local and national mining presence while highlighting its strong environmental expertise and relationships with Indigenous communities within Northern Québec. The Company has gained extensive experience in Québec providing services to mining client projects and sees the industry as an opportunity for growth in its environmental consulting services and water technologies.
