About Plan Nord Project 167
In 2011, when the Québec Government launched its ambitious Plan Nord project to develop Québec's north, including the construction of a 243 kilometre-long all-season road that links Stornoway's Renard Diamond project to the provincial highway network, Visible Gold Mines' management decided to acquire the available mining rights along each side of the new road in order to have access to new outcrops and strippings generated by the road construction. Visible Gold Mines acquired claims by acquisition and staking and so the Project 167 was born. Out of the 140 kilometres of new road available for mining exploration (the first 102 kilometres are a planned provincial park), Visible Gold Mines owns more than 110 kilometres. The 167 provincial road was completed in October 2014 at a construction cost of approximately $350 million. The Project 167 is 100% owned by Visible Gold Mines, with the exception of 80 mining claims comprising the North Block, in which Visible Gold Mines currently has a 90% interest. The Project 167 covers approximately 61,178 hectares or 611 km2.
