Brunswick Smelter Site

Since announcing the closure of the Brunswick Smelter in November 2019, Glencore has remained committed to a closure process that would ensure a proper shutdown and remediation of the site while supporting the community during the transition.

In April 2020, Glencore registered the project with the New Brunswick Department of Environment and Local Government. The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) document looks at the likely environmental impacts of the closure and is an important part of the closure process.

The purpose of this virtual information session is to provide an overview of the decommissioning project and solicit feedback.  Comments and questions will be accepted from the public until December 31, 2021.


Copies of the EIA document are available at the following locations:  Belledune Municipal Office  2471 Main St. Belledune, NB  Electronic versions of the document are available at
