Donkin Mine project

Transportation Minister Geoff MacLellan says the province will partner with Kameron Collieries to build a road to haul coal from the Donkin Mine to the port so it can be shipped overseas.

MacLellan told the Cape Breton Post they’re doing a traffic study to determine the best route, but the coal road will run along the former rail bed south of Dominion Street and come out by the airport.  The government and the company are still working on the cost-sharing agreement for the 7 kilometre road.
