Pursuant to paragraph 7(2) of the said Act,


Alamos Gold Inc has deposited with the Minister of Transport, on the on-line Common Project Search Registry ( under the NPP File Number 2024-411557 a description of the following work, its site and plans:


  • Brief Project Description:
    • The raw-water intake will be placed along the lake bed (21m) of Goudreau Lake to supply the mine with approximately 100m3/d of water for domestic use. The intake will consist of 2 suction lines of 80mm high density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe, extending from the pump house. The lines will be supported by ballast weights spaced every 3m (totalling 5 ballast weights, each rising 0.3m above the lakebed) and an end support (which will rise 1.3m off the lakebed)
  • Brief Project Description:
    • The pipes from the pump house to the shoreline are designed to be approximately 14 m in length, buried and insulated. In the lake, the pipes will be on lake bed, retained by concrete ballast weights on the lakebed spaced every 3 m in a total distance of 21 m approximately; therefore, it does not extend vertically.
    • The specific methodology for the installation of this intake is provided by the contractor and will generally consist of:
      • An initial drilling of a 5” pilot hole to confirm subsurface conditions and pipeline alignment
      • A widening of pilot hole with a 10” drill bit and/or reamer
      • Connection of HDPE pipe and installation through the drilled opening in, on, over, under, through or across Goudreau Lake at UTM Zone 16U E: 691368.16; N: 5351927.54 / Long -84.419917 Lat 48.291588 in front of lot number Alamos Gold Inc. Claim # SSM991856.
