The Sisson Project is an initiative to develop a world-class deposit of tungsten and molybdenum into a modern, long-life mine.
The Project is located on Crown land in central New Brunswick, 100 kilometres northwest of Fredericton by road, and near the communities of Napadogan, Juniper, and Stanley. Situated within the Nashwaak Watershed, the area has supported logging activity for over a century. The Sisson Project-area is well served by local and regional infrastructure including highways, roads, railways, deep sea ports and power lines.
The Sisson Project will be developed as a conventional mining operation. Site facilities, as described in the 2013 Feasibility Study include:
- an open pit;
- mineral processing facilities to produce tungsten and molybdenum concentrates, and ammonium paratungstate (APT);
- a water treatment plant;
- a tailings storage facility; and
- ancillary buildings including offices, laboratory and warehouse.
The Sisson Partnership recognizes the value that New Brunswickers place on their land, water and natural resources, and is committed to advancing the Sisson Project in a manner that respects these values.
