Scope of Marathon Stillwater project to be re-evaluated

By tbnewswatch.com

The scope of the platinum metals group mine in Marathon looks to be under review.

Stillwater Canada suspended the Panel Review Team consulatations that were scheduled to begin on Thursday in Marathon as well as surrounding First Nations.

The decision was made to process questions that would have arisen over the company's re-evaluation of the size of the project, which under the current proposal would create 350 full-time jobs in the Marathon area.

Marathon mayor Rick Dumas said the community would still meet with the company in March while Stillwater president Clark Gilbert stressed that the site is still viewed as an asset to stakeholders.
