Canada | New wilderness area designated in Nova Scotia, including lake eyed as water source for mine

GUYSBOROUGH, N.S. - The Nova Scotia government has announced a new provincial wilderness area in Guysborough County, protecting a lake that has been eyed as a water source for a proposed gold mine.

Agriculture Minister Greg Morrow said Monday that the Archibald Lake Wilderness Area will cover nearly 700 hectares of old-growth forest, lakes and wetland near Nova Scotia's eastern shore. The area includes Archibald Lake, McDonald and Rocky Lake, which feed into Archibald Brook, a tributary of the St. Mary's River.
