Constantia, Clinton Indian Band sign agreement

Constantia Resources and the Clinton Indian Band work together on the Maggie Exploration Project north of Cache Creek.

Constantia Resources Ltd. (“Constantia”) has signed an Advanced Consultation and Capacity Agreement (the “Agreement”) with the Whispering Pines/Clinton Indian Band (“Whispering Pines”) for the Maggie Exploration Project located north of Cache Creek.

The Agreement builds on an earlier (June 2012) agreement between Constantia and Whispering Pines. It includes provisions for supporting Whispering Pines participation in environmental assessment, and a framework to work collaboratively at each advancing stage of the Maggie project. The agreement will also help build capacity in the Whispering Pines community through skills training and employment and contracting opportunities.

“We are very pleased to have entered into this agreement and strengthened our relationship with the Whispering Pines community” said Constantia CEO Ron Thiessen. “We have worked hard to show we are a respectful company, committed to early engagement and building long-term partnerships, and I thank Chief Michael LeBourdais for his leadership.”

“The agreement with Constantia Resources on the Maggie mine project recognizes Whispering Pine’s priorities are focused on Three E’s: Environment, Education and Employment for our members and our elders, “said Chief LeBourdais. “We believe that the agreement with Constantia does meet our priorities while balancing the culture, heritage and environmental protection.”

The Maggie Exploration Project recently completed Phase One of its exploration drilling program and the results of that program are currently being assessed by the Company. During Phase One, Constantia contracted with Whispering Pines for the lease of vehicles during the drill program, and provided training and employment opportunities for Whispering Pines members.
