Critical Elements Corporation is proposing the construction, operation and decommissioning of an open pit tantalum and lithium mine located approximately 38 kilometres north of Nemiscau in Quebec.

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is making $30,600 available to support public participation in the federal environmental assessment of the Rose Mining Project.

As proposed by Critical Elements, the project includes the operation of an open pit, possibly followed by underground mining, waste and tailings impoundment area, an industrial ore processing facility and the option of transforming concentrate off-site. The mine would produce about 4,500 tonnes of ore per day over a 17-year life span.

The agency funding will support participation in upcoming steps of the environmental assessment, such as consultation related to the Environmental Impact Statement and consultation on the draft Environmental Assessment Report.

To apply for funding or for more information on the project and the environmental assessment process, visit the Agency's website at www.ceaa-acee.gc.ca registry reference number 80005) or contact the Participant Funding Program by writing to PFP.PAFP@ceaa-acee.gc.ca or by calling 1-866-582-1884.

Applications received by January 28, 2013 will be considered. Funding recipients will be announced later.
