KELOWNA, BC, June 7, 2021 / CNW / – FISSION URANIUM CORP. (“Fission” or “the company“) is pleased to report that, as part of its progress towards the feasibility and environmental assessment phases of the PLS project in Saskatchewan, Canada, the Company continues to build mutually respectful, transparent and productive relationships with all local rights holders and stakeholders. This includes the recently signed Commitment and Capacity Agreement with the Clearwater River Dene Nation (“CRDN”) (see press release dated March 25, 2021). The deal strengthens the positive working relationship and establishes a basis for Fission and CRDN to negotiate a long-term impact and benefits agreement if the PLS project is approved.
The processes covered by the agreement include:
- Prepare, facilitate and coordinate information sharing meetings on the project between CRDN and Fission;
- Facilitate and conduct a community information meeting on the status of the project;
- Write, contribute, revise and provide comments on the preliminary documents leading to the environmental impact study;
- CRDN Comments on the preliminary project description and the final project description;
- Joint review and agreement on target information to be processed through engagement activities; and
- Joint work and collaboration on the scope of engagement activities and support budget.
To achieve the results of these processes in a meaningful and collaborative way, Fission and CRDN have established open lines of communication and connect regularly by phone, email and / or meeting. This active and open approach has been paired with a shared communications and engagement tracking journal, requested by the CRDN, to create a cohesive, transparent and accountable way to raise and respond to questions, requests for information and concerns, quickly and efficiently.
As part of the deal, Fission is funding CRDN’s ongoing engagement work, including a study on indigenous rights and knowledge and an impact assessment study on traditional lands and culture. These studies will inform CRDN and Fission and will be incorporated into the ongoing assessment of the Patterson Lake South Fission project.
Chief Clark commented: “The CRDN is not against economic development in our traditional territory and appreciates the steps Fission Uranium is taking in its approach to address the concerns of the nation. The Dene Nation of Clearwater knows that the duty to consult, accommodate and reconcile rests with governments. We will never have another “Cluff Lake” on our land. We welcome companies interested in learning more about our nation and our constitutionally protected rights to lands like Fission. ”
