PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD: BURNCO Aggregate Mine at McNab Creek
A large scale gravel mine continues to press forward at McNab Creek, in the middle of Howe Sound. BURNCO Rock Products of Alberta wants to dig a 74+ acre pit, build an onsite crushing and processing plant, and produce 20+ million tonnes of aggregate over 16 + years. The project will create only 12 direct operational jobs and faces widespread community opposition, despite which the company continues to pursue the development.
The PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD is active until September 28th, 2016. There is a Public Open House on Sept. 12 in Squamish.
