De Beers’ Gahcho Kué receives land use permit, water licence

18 august 2014

Canada’s Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board has issued the type A land use permit and type A water licence for the Gahcho Kué diamond project, which is a joint venture between De Beers Canada and Mountain Province Diamonds.
De Beers Canada chief executive Tony Guthrie said this represented one of the final regulatory steps for the Gahcho Kué diamond mine.
“We will continue to develop the project responsibly in keeping with the principles of sustainable development, including protection of the environment, and with respect for Aboriginal culture and traditions,” he said.
Production was expected to commence in 2016.
Mountain Province Diamonds chief executive Patrick Evans also said that as the world’s “largest and richest” new diamond mine, Gahcho Kué would maintain Canada’s position as a “leading” diamond producer.
The construction, working and sustaining capital estimate was between $600 million and $650 million.
Gahcho Kué would employ close to 700 people during the two years of construction and about 400 people during its operational phase.
