Drilling work in 2019 at Janice Lake

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment has granted permitting for the work on a 99-kilometre (61.5-mile) access trail to support a work camp that is projected to hold 65-80 individuals. The crews will be overseeing drilling and mineral exploration at the site this year and next.

The trail will extend from the camp location to the northeast of Burbidge Lake; RTEC plans to also use it for the mobilisation of the camp, camp supplies and drilling equipment prior to spring break-up ahead of the exploration work it has planned for this year.

Forum previously confirmed that RTEC, which will be operating the access road, can earn an 80% interest in Janice Lake by completing C$30 million (US$22.8 million) in exploration.

Technical teams for both groups will be meeting soon to outline the programme to prepare for the next phase of exploration, though neither could release a timeline at this time.

Janice Lake's deposit encompasses the entire Wollaston Copperbelt District in north-central Saskatchewan.
