On 23 November Graymont announced that following extensive public and First Nations consultations, the company has filed a British Columbia Environmental Assessment application for a proposed lime plant and quarry operation to be constructed near Giscome, BC in the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George.

President and Chief Executive Officer Stéphane Godin noted that changes have been made to the scope and design of the Giscome project as a result of input received during consultations with the LTFN and key local stakeholders. “We intend to continue these consultations throughout the application review and approval process,” he added.

The Giscome project entails quarry development and construction of a processing plant including state-of-the-art kilns each capable of producing approximately 200 000 tpy of lime using low-emission ‘vertical’ kiln technology. Assuming necessary approvals are received, the Company anticipates starting construction in 2016 and commencing lime production in 2018.

The planned investment at Giscome is consistent with Graymont's growth strategy to focus on Western Canada and the North.
