Good news for the 4M Circle Route. The Côté Gold Project has been put on hold. Plans were in place to berm the Three Duck lakes in the region, and the mining activity was to take place directly adjacent to the canoe route. This would have disastrous impacts on a provincially significant MNRF 'Class A' canoe route.

This is excellent news! I passed through this route just a few weeks after you did this summer. I thought it was my "last chance to see," but I'm happy that I'll be able to revisit it again sometime without paddling past a gold mine on Three Duck Lakes.
