Wescan Goldfields confirms early application for coal dispositions in Saskatchewanadmin
Wescan Goldfields Inc. is pleased to announce that it has applied for an extensive package of coal dispositions in the east central area of Saskatchewan. Coal permit applications covering approximately 240,000 hectares were submitted in April, in accordance with the Coal Disposition Act of Saskatchewan, immediately following the announcement of a significant coal discovery in that region. Wescan is currently in the process of acquiring a letter of comfort from Saskatchewan Energy and Resources and Wescan will promptly report upon receipt of this letter. The receipt of any actual dispositions and permits will be dependent upon regulatory approval and related time requirements to process the applications.
Wescan applied for coal dispositions adjacent to and partially surrounding the coal discovery made by Goldsource Mines Inc. (“Goldsource”), which was announced by Goldsource on April 22, 2008. The near surface intersections discovered by Goldsource were made in two holes targeting kimberlite spaced 1.64 kilometres apart in an area 50 kilometres north of Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan.
Wescan is a Canadian based corporation engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral properties. Shares of Wescan trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the trading symbol “WGF”.
