These studies include the following:

  • Identification and classification of Wetlands (Fall 2019)
  • Characterization and inventory of the Avifauna (June 2021)
  • Characterization and inventory of the flora and terrestrial environment (August 2021)
  • Characterization and inventory of aquatic components (August and September 2021)

Sirios reported that the results of these studies have revealed no environmental concerns that could impact the Cheechoo project’s development.

The positive completion of this set of environmental studies on our Cheechoo gold property is great news for the project, which can advance towards development while complying with the highest environmental standards.

Dominique Doucet, President and CEO, Sirios Resources Inc.

The EBS’s goal is to analyze and evaluate related environmental parameters for the potential future mine area as a record of environmental conditions prior to any major project activities. This aids in the identification and mitigation of possible environmental and social impacts connected with the project’s development.

The EBS is used to create an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), which is an important part of the mine development approval and permitting process.

About the Cheechoo Property

Sirios’ Cheechoo gold property is situated in Eeyou Istchee James Bay, Quebec, about 9 km from Newmont’s Eleonore gold mine. The most recent resource estimate for the Cheechoo project (October 2020) estimated an inferred resource of 2.0 million ounces of gold in 93.0 million tons of rock at an average grade of 0.65 g/t Au, with considerable potential to enhance this resource.
