Canada Nickel (TSX.V: CNC) (OTCQX: CNIKF) has started the Impact Statement Phase for its Crawford Nickel Project under the Impact Assessment Act. The second phase of the process, the Impact Statement phase is critical for the project because the process will be used by regulators, Indigenous communities, the general public, stakeholders and proponents alike as a planning and decision-making tool. The phase will be integral to emphasizing the positive impacts of the proposed project as well as resolving or mitigating the negative impact and ensuring that the project moves forward in the public’s best interest. The company noted that the Impact Statement Phase culminates with the proponent’s submission of the Impact Statement. “As we now enter the second phase of the Impact Assessment process, we’d like to express our appreciation to our partners, stakeholders and Indigenous communities for their continued engagement, and to the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada for their timely actions in efficiently progressing the Impact Assessment process for Crawford,” said Canada Nickel chair and CEO Mark Selby in the press release. “As we continue our rapid progression through project permitting, Canada Nickel remains committed to ensuring thorough, meaningful baseline assessments, impact analysis, and engagement.”
