Victor mine moves forward.

De Beers Canada and Attawapiskat First Nation have reached an interim agreement, which paves the way for construction of winter roads to take place and preliminary mine development activities to get underway.

The agreement stipulates the First Nation will receive funding to hire a director of lands and resources and a project liaison officer, and also outlines the development of a training centre for the community for jobs created by the Victor Diamond Mine project.

The mine is slated for construction in 2006. De Beers plans to upgrade the winter road between Moosonee and Attawapiskat to facilitate the transport of double-lined fuel tanks, steel for permanent tanks and fuel to the mine site.
