Fortune Minerals has submitted a Comprehensive Development Report to rezone to industrial, the land it owns near Langham. The company wants to build a hydrometallurgical refinery. Last week, Fortune held an information session in Langham as part of the rezoning process that is expected to be completed later this year. The project also includes a mine, mill, and concentrator in the Northwest Territories. It’s a Cobalt-Gold-Bismuth-Copper operation. If the company receives the funding for the NICO project, and the remaining regulatory approvals come through this year, the mine facilities could begin construction next year. It’s expected to take two years to complete. The refinery requires about 18 months for construction unless it’s deferred if the company decides to initially sell metal concentrates. Some residents in the area have expressed concerns in the past about how the plant could affect air and water quality; however, the company passed an environmental assessment four years ago.
