Constantia and Clinton Indian Band sign clean energy agreement

Mining company signs agreement with Clinton Indian Band to examine the creation and sale of wind energy.

Constantia Resources Ltd. is pleased to announce it has signed a Clean Energy Opportunities Agreement with the Whispering Pines/Clinton Indian Band.

The Agreement is to jointly assess the possibility of using a Whispering Pines Clean Energy Project as a source of power for Constantia if its Maggie Exploration Project proceeds to the development stage.

“We are very proud of this innovative agreement, and the positive relationship we have with the Whispering Pines/Clinton Indian Band,” said Constantia President Stephen Hodgson. “This is the fifth agreement we have entered into with First Nations regarding our Maggie project and we think it illustrates how good things can happen when people work together”

Whispering Pines and Constantia will examine the potential to develop a wind or biomass renewable energy project as a means to provide sustainable economic benefits to the First Nation community. The Agreement lays out a framework for Whispering Pines and Constantia to work together to assess potential renewable energy projects, meet with potential project partners and engage in marketing activities to source financing for a project.

The Clean Energy Opportunities Agreement builds on the Advanced Consultation and Capacity Agreement the two parties signed in June, 2014.

Constantia Resources Ltd. is a British Columbia-based mineral exploration company focused on determining the extent of mineralization at the Maggie Project, which is located halfway between Cache Creek and Clinton. Historical data indicates that copper and molybdenum mineralization exists in the area. Constantia is assessing the mineral resource potential at Maggie, while creating employment, education and other opportunities and benefits for local people. Constantia is committed to constructive engagement with local Aboriginal groups. In addition to the agreements signed with the Whispering Pines/Clinton Indian Band, Constantia recently signed a Cooperation and Benefits Agreement with the High Bar First Nation. Constantia is affiliated with Hunter Dickinson Inc. (HDI), a leading Canadian mineral exploration and development company with more than 25 years of mineral exploration success.
