The North Coast LRMP Aggregate Potential Map provides a mechanism for identifying target areas for further aggregate investigation. In general, there is limited aggregate potential within the North Coast LRMP, as access and availability of material is relatively restricted. However, a number of possible aggregate locations were identified in this project that, with further investigation, may prove to be economic for either local use or export. Almost all locations will have to rely on transportation by water, as the existing road network infrastructure does not extend beyond Prince Rupert and the Skeena River corridor.
