- The tungsten and molybdenum mine proposed for development at Sisson Brook, located northwest of Fredericton, would create 200 to 300 full-time jobs over the 27-year life span of the mine. The project proposed by Northcliff Resources Limited needs to clear environmental regulations before the company attempts to raise $580M to start production. Should environmental and financial hurdles be cleared, production would begin most likely by the end of 2014.
- The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency has opened a six-week public comment period in order to gather input on the Sisson mine project's impact assessment. The assessment, which was released recently, proposes the development of an open-pit tungsten and molybdenum mine near Stanley, New Brunswick.
