PM Trudeau and Doug Ford Speak at Côté Gold Mine Project Ceremony

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ontario Premier Doug Ford are among the speakers at the ground-breaking ceremony for the Côté Gold mining project in Gogama, Ontario. Other speakers include IAMGOLD CEO Gordon Stothart, Mattagami First Nation Chief Chad Boissoneau, and Flying Post First Nation Chief Murray Ray. The mine is expected to generate more than $5 billion in wages once it is fully operational and contribute $10 billion to Ontario’s gross domestic product over its 18-year life span. It will take an estimated three year to build the mine. (September 11, 2020) (no interpretation)
