If Noront Resources selects Sault Ste. Marie as the most feasible site economically, a comprehensive, multi-year environmental assessment (EA) and community consultation will take place. During this process, citizens and organizations, including all levels of government, will be engaged. Only if the development has public support, and only if it passes environmental regulations, would construction begin on the plant.
