Seabridge Gold

Iskut: ENVIRONMENTAL/PERMITTING

With the acquisition of SnipGold Corp., Seabridge Gold inherited a stable of active permits for the Iskut Project including four mining/mineral exploration permits (Johnny Mountain, Iskut Property, Golden Triangle Property and the Snip North Property) as well as two Licences of Occupation covering the Bronson Slope Airstrip and an adjacent property which houses the camp and storage buildings. These permits are in good standing as of January 2018 and authorize all of the work planned for the 2018 program including mineral exploration, reclamation and supporting activities such as camp construction.

In conjunction with the 2017 exploration program, Seabridge proceeded with environmental work to ensure compliance with existing authorizations and to design remediation programs required to mitigate the impacts of historical mining activity. This work included a comprehensive evaluation of best practices for remediation drawing from the Seabridge environmental team's experiences at KSM and other North America sites as well as engagement with the Tahltan First Nation and British Columbia regulatory officials.

In 2018, Seabridge will commence a five year multi-million dollar reclamation and closure plan for the former Johnny Mountain Mine.
