Silver Fields Resources Inc. Receives Letter of Comfort on Saskatchewan Coal Permitsadmin
Silver Fields Resources Inc., announce that a “Letter of Comfort” has been received from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Energy and Resources in regard to coal permit applications submitted on behalf of the Company covering 18,646 hectares (46,075 acres) southwest of Wapawekka Lake and southeast of Lac La Ronge near the intersection of Highways 165 and 912, in accordance with the Coal Disposition Act of Saskatchewan. The time frame for granting of the permits is dependent upon regulatory requirements to process the applications.
The “Comfort Letter” includes a list of dispositions applied for, the dates of the submissions, land description, boundary plan, affirmation of fee payment and first-year rent, the allocated Coal Prospecting Permit (CPP) numbers, and if the submission has priority over other applications. The “Comfort Letter” received by Silver Fields confirms the permits applied for are “first in line” and will be given priority sequence.
The final granting of the coal permits is dependent upon government regulatory approval and time required to process the applications, which is at the discretion of the Government of Saskatchewan. Granting of coal permits is subject to a final review of each application, indicating the nature of the work and money to be expended. The “Comfort Letter” is not a guarantee that all or any of the permits will be issued to Silver Fields, only whether or not the Company is first in line for the permits.
