President and CEO Kevin Bullock stated, "Signal Gold is extremely pleased to have received the environmental approval for its Goldboro gold project, an important milestone that reflects the culmination of five years of environmental baseline monitoring and analysis. This approval marks an important milestone towards the development of Goldboro, which will have a significant socio-economic impact on the region and the province.
“We remain committed to working with Mi'kmaq, community members, regulators, and other stakeholders, as we progress towards the next steps to developing Nova Scotia's next gold mine, the largest private sector development project in the province."

The company said it is currently reviewing the terms and conditions and is also reviewing all comments provided by rightsholders and community stakeholders through the environmental assessment process. The company will provide an update at a future date on next steps as it progresses Goldboro towards development.
