New Gold community meetings

New Gold gives thanks for those who came out to the community meetings.

Dear Community Members,


It was great to see so many of you at the recent Blackwater Project open houses in Vanderhoof, Fraser Lake, Burns Lake, Quesnel, Fort St. James and Prince George.

At the open houses, many people expressed interest in job and contract opportunities and asked questions about environmental management and local training initiatives.

For more information on the open houses go to You’ll also see that we’ve added several updates to the website, including the open house panels and a new video that provides a look at the proposed mine site and mining process.

Please send us an email at or give us a call at (250)-567-3276 if you have questions or concerns related to any aspect of the project. You can also forward this email to anyone you think would like to be kept up-to-date as the project progresses.

Our goal is to design and build a project that leaves a lasting, positive benefit to the region. We look forward to keeping you well-informed and wish you a fun, safe summer.
