Innovation Metals Corp. announced that by submitting a Project Notice to Quebec’s government it has begun the process of receiving a permit for its planned rare earth separation plant.
As quoted in the press release:
The Project Notice was submitted to the Ministere du Developpement durable, de l’Environnement et des Parcs (the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment and Parks) so that the provincial government can decide on the nature, area and scope of the environmental study to be conducted.
Patrick Wong, CEO of IMC, commented:
We hope to have completed the Environmental Impact Assessment and to receive the permit within 18 months. This will allow us enough time to complete our comprehensive plans for a plant that produces very little waste. IMC is committed to fostering a sustainable and clean environment, and we envisage our approach becoming a benchmark for future such facilities.
